  1. How does the nervous system control homestasis?
    releasing neurotransmitters
  2. What are the two systems that are regulate homostasis in the body
    Nervous and the Endocrine
  3. How does the endocrine system control homostastis
    the use of hormones
  4. In the nervous system, is the response fast and or short and how long does it take?
    the response is fast and it is very short.
  5. In the endocrine system, is the response fast and or short and how long does it take?
    the response is is slower and it is longer
  6. In the Endocrine secretion enters where?
    • in the interstitual fluid then in blood stream it stays in the body
    • examples, insulin and estrogen
  7. What system has a duct?
    • Exocrine, because the secretions that enter ducts ultimately exit
    • ex. mucus, salvia, sweats and tears.
  8. What are the Endocrine Cells that make hormones?
    Pituitary, thyriod, parathyroid, adrenal, and the pineal.
  9. How are hormones carried and which one are affected ?
    They are carried through the blood stream, and only certain one are affected
  10. What are the affected hormones cells called
    Target cells
  11. What are lipid-soluble hormones
    • steriods, such as testosterone, estrogens,
    • thyroid hormones: t3 and t4
  12. What are water-soluble hormones?
    • -amino acid derivates--> such as epinephrine, norepinephrine

    small amounts in bloodstream, excess amounts causes skin darkening. we do not know much about this
  28. Posterior Pituitary
    Hormones made in hypothalamus pass down axons to posterior pituitary
  29. what two hormones are released in the Pituitary gland?
    Oxytocin and ADH
  30. Oxytocin
    for child birth, smooths muscle contraction of uterus during childbirth, causes letdown of milk from glands to ducts
  31. ADH
    stops urinating, causes kidneys to retain more water, also causes vasoconstriction--> increases blood pressure, dehydration, pain and stress--> increase ADH secretion
  32. Thyroid glands: Thyroxin T4 Tridothyroine T3
    increases basal metabolic rate with energy involved it makes protein synethesis
  33. Increased T4 T3

    leads to an increase BMR and to weight loss
  34. Decreased T4 T3
    Decrease BMR and decrease in gain weight
  35. Calcitonin does what
    Strengthens bone and decreases calcium in the blood
  36. Parathyroid Gland function
    increases # of actvity of osteoclasts that break down bone, slow loss of Calcium  also promotes production calcitriol for Vitamin D increase the absorption of Calcium in blood
  37. Pancreas
    has panreatic islets,
  38. Pancreas has two cell types known as
    Alpha cells, and beta cells
  39. Alpha Cells:
    Also known as glucagon it helps low blood glucose hypoglycemia it is told when to release glucogen acts to converts glycogen into glucose to raise blood levels
  40. Beta Cells
    Also known as insulin; ot helps wit high blood glucose hyperglycemia it is told when to release insulin acts to diffuse in the cell and break up glycogen and stores extra glycogen
  41. Diabetes:
    There is Type I and Type II; Type I is a born with disease where the beta cells are being attacked and do not produce insulin, Type II beta cells are overworked
  42. What are two Adrenal Glands?
    Cortex and adrenal medulla

    to much of white blood cells
  73. Leukopenia
    low white blood cell count
  74. Platelets come from where
    megakaryocytes and plug damaged blood vessels promote blood clotting
  75. Hemostasis 3 steps to stop bleeding
    Vascular spasm: respond to damage quick reduction of blood, Platelet plug formation platelets becom sticky when damage and build a vessel wall, blood clotting, series of chemical reactions involving clotting factors
  76. Pathway to stop bleeding and what plays an important role
    Fibrinogen-> Fibrin-> Clot; Calcium
