In this course we will focus on understanding the basics of human bone biology, including the cellular and endocrine mechanisms that regulate bone growth and development, and the ways that environmental factors such as mechanical loading can increase bone strength. Topics will include the development of bone mass, geometry, and strength in subadults, interactions of exercise and bone strength, and the potential contributions of changes in life history and activity levels to the gracilization, or decrease in robusticity, of the human skeleton since the end of the Pleistocene. We will also discuss the techniques used to quantify bone mass and bone strength and to image bone structure.
