Talk: The physiology of living life to the extreme - BNSS

Event date: 17th August 2021 at: 7.30pm via Zoom

Speaker: Dr Becky Rendell, Senior Lecturer in Exercise Physiology, Bournemouth University

Is the original secret to the domination of the human race simply physiology? Our body goes through a lot every day, but it can endure a whole lot more; from surviving life on the ice-caps to performing extraordinary feats of endurance in the desert, we can adapt to almost anything. This talk will explore how our bodies respond to extreme environments, the risks we face and how we might manipulate these scenarios to our advantage.
