  3. Define Homeostasis
    A state of dynamic equilibrium in which the internal environment of the body remains relatively constant
  4. What is Anatomy?
    Anatomy is the structure of the body, location, appearance in relation to other body parts
  5. what is Physiology
    Physiology is the study of the body’s function or how it works
  6. What is anatomy and physiology in relation to eachother
    structure vs function
  7. what are the 5 basic functions 
    • movement
    • excretion
    • communication
    • transportation
    • reproduction
  8. What is the function of the Nervous system
  9. how does the nervous system communicate
    through an electrical Impulse or nerve impulse that works fast to maintain short term homeostasis
  10. How does the nervous system maintain homeostasis
    • Receives, interprets and responds to sensations in order to maintain homeostasis. 
    • Monitors and controls body activities
  11. What organs are in the nervous system
    • the brain
    • spinal cord
    • special
    • sense organs (Nose, ear,eyes, tongue,etc..)
    • Nerves
  12. what is the process of the nervous system
    • Sense
    • Decide                 
    • Response
  13. What does PNS stand for? what does it do?
    Peripheral Nervous System is the nervous link. parts of your PNS are controlled by the brain automatically. This is the autonomic nervous system. It manages some things your body does 'without thinking' such as reactions
  14. what does CNS stand for? what does it do?
    • Central Nervous System
    • Combines pieces of Information and makes decisions
  15. what specialist deals with the nervous system
     a Neurologist
  16. what happens if the nervous system fails
    If something happens to the organs within the system there can be no communication between the brain and the body. So essentially the victim will become a vegetable and have no control over their body.  Ex. Paraplegia- Complete paralysis of the lower half of the body including both legs, usually caused by damage to the spinal cord.

    what system is this?
    the nervous system
  18. What are the differences between the nervous and endocrine system
    Nervous System:Fast Impulse,Short term Homeostasis,Electromagnetic Impulse

    Endocrine System:Slower Chemical Messenger,Long term Homeostasis, Hormones
  19. What is the basic function of the endocrine system?
  20. How does the Endocrine system communicate
    Ductless Glands that secrete hormones.Communicates through hormones (Chemical Messengers) that are secreted and travel into the blood stream towards the target organ. Hormones work slower than an impulse to maintain long term Homeostasis.
  21. what are the organs in the endocrine system
    • Pituitary Glands
    • Gonads
    • Thymus
    • Pancreas

    If the Endocrine system is damaged or does not work properly the body might not grow or mature properly. All body functions would be deranged and death would occur. Too much or too little of any hormone can be harmful to your body. For example, if the pituitary gland produces too much growth hormone, a teen may grow excessively tall. If it produces too little, a teen may be unusually short.

    • transportation
    • exchange
    • filtration
    • reabsorption
  30. How does the cardiovascular transport
    Moves blood to all body systems so that every cell can obtain oxygen and nutrients needed to carry on metabolic activities. Wastes produced are then moved to organs for processing before their accumulation causes damage.
  31. How does the cardiovascular system exchange
    Capillaries provide a “Drop off” and “Pick up” service to cells. Is the dropping off of gases and nutrients, and the picking up of wastes, occurring between the blood plasma and ISF.

    carry oxygenated blood away from the heart
  35. what do the veins do
    carry deoxygenated blood towards the heart
  36. what is the purpose of the capillaries
    they serve as a site of exchange, they provide a “Drop off” and “Pick up” service to cells. Is the dropping off of gases and nutrients, and the picking up of wastes, occurring between the blood plasma and ISF.
  37. what specialist deals withe the cardiovascular system
    a cardiologist 
  38. what happens if the cardiovascular system fails
    If the cardiovascular system fails the blood will not be pumped to muscles. Blood contains oxygen and glucose, which the cells need to convert to energy and to survive, and if the cells do not get blood, they will die, and the person whose system has failed will die. This is why the circulatory system is vital for life.
  39. What are the functions of the lymphatic system
    • Protection
    • transportation
  40. how does the lymphatic system protect

    • Tonsils
  43. What specialist deals with the lymphatic system
    a hematologist
  44. what would happen if the lymphatic system failed
    The lymphatic system is the body's sewer system. Waste products and infectious material will end up in this circulatory system which eventually empties back into the blood system and to the entire body. Infections would not be fought off and life could not be sustained.
  45. what are the fluids in the lymphatic system
    • Lymph
    • Plasma
    • ISF (Interstitial pace)

  60. what are the functions of the muscular system
    • movement
    • support
    • producation
  61. how does the muscular system provide movement
