The Department of Biomedical Sciences aims to provide knowledge of anatomy and physiology in order to understand the mechanisms and treatment of animal diseases. Additionally, it seeks to teach the understanding of drug-action for rational drug-therapy, as well as toxicology, pharmacodynamics, and clinical drug administration.

History
The Department of Biomedical Sciences was formed in 1999 as a merger of the Department of Veterinary Anatomy and the Department of Veterinary Physiology and Pharmacology.

Abstract

One of the growing problems for people, especially in the elderly community is neurodegeneration, cognitive impairment, and dementia. These cases are expected to continue to rise while diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease have no cure. Several studies have examined resistance exercise as a method of improving the outcomes for people with these symptoms. It has been found that resistance exercise is capable of reducing or improving the structural changes of neurodegeneration which leads to cognitive improvements. This review will examine several of these articles and compile them into a format which displays that resistance exercise can be a valuable option to incorporate into a health care plan.
