    • 5.voluntary
    • 6.straited
    • 7.cardiac
  7. what are the functions for the visceral, involuntary and smooth muscles?
    • -visceral: guts
    • -involuntary: you don't have to think about it
    • -smooth: looks smooth
  8. whatare the functions for the skeletal, voluntary, straited and cardiac muscles?
    • -skeletal: provides body movement.
    • -voluntary: you need to think about it
    • -cardiac: acquires an intrensic beat
  9. what are the functions for the muscle system?
    • -movement
    • -maintains body posture and tone
    • -production of body heat
  10. what are the structures for the endocryne system
    • -hypothalmus 
    • -pituitary gland
    • -pineal gland
    • -thyroid
    • -parathyroid
    • -adrenal
    • -pancreas
    • -ovaries 
  11. function of hypothalmus?
    • -links between brain and pituitary gland.
    • -controls emotions
  12. fucntion of pituitary gland
    secretes HGH hormone 
  13. fucntion of the pineal gland
    -senses light in dark areas and produces melatonin
  14. what does melatonin do and what happens if you lack it and what does it produce?
    melatonin helps sleep. Lack causes s.a.d which is seasonal adjusted disorder. It produces melatosites and causes the color in our skin.
  15. purpose of thyroid
    • -produces thyroxine which regulated metabolism.
    • -produces calcitonin which regulates calcium in your blood. (takes calcium from blood into the bone.)
  16. purpose of parathyroid?
    produces parathyroid hormone which takes calcium from bone into the blood.
  17. purpose of adrenal (kidneys)
    • -produces epinephrine (adrenaline)
    • -has the ability to use glucose and increases heart/respiration. 
  18. purpose of pancreas

  19. purpose of ovaries and testes
    • ovaries:
    • -estrogen: female sex hormone.
    • -progesterone: pregnancy hormone which keeps a woman pregnant if they're pregnant.

    • testes:
    • -testosterone
  20. what's the function of the endocryne system?
    • secretes hormones into the blood
    • communication (slow and long duration)
    • integration / control to maintain homeostasis. 
  21. what is the feedback loop?
    nervous system -> endocrine system -> targets the cells -> action takes place -> nervous system....
