  1. What are the functions of a nephron?
    • 1. Filtration
    • 2. Reabsorption
    • 3. Secretion
  2. Where does filtration occur and what is it?
    • Occurs between the glomerulus and Bowman's Capsule.
    • As a result of osmotic and hydrostatic pressures, the liquid portion of the blood minus the large proteins (glomerular filtrate) leaves the glomerulus and collects in the cup-life Bowman's Capsule.
  3. Where does reabsorption occur and what is it?
    • Occurs in the PCT, LH, DCT, and CD.
    • It is the movement of valuable substances from the PCT, LH, DCT, & CD to the peritubular capillary bed.

    The brain releases a large amount of vasopressin
