  1. Anatomical Position
    • - Position with the body erect with the arms at the sides and the palms forward.
    • - Position is of importance in anatomy because it is the position of reference for anatomical nomenclature.
  2. Metabolism
    the sum of all chemical processes that occur in the body
  3. Homeostasis
    property of a system in which variables are regulated so that internal conditions remain stable and relatively constant
  4. Negative Feedback
    • system reverses a change in a controlled condition. ie BP increases...  
    • baroreceptors detect higher presure,
    • baroreceptors send nerve impulses to brain
    • brain sends nerve impulses to heart and blood vessels to slow down rate and dilate blood vessels
  5. Positive Feedback System
    • tends to strengthen or reinforce a change in one of the body's controlled conditions.  the effector produces a physiological response that adds to or reinforces the initial change in the controlled condition.  the action of a positive feedback system continues until it is interrupted by some mechanism.
    • child birth
    • stretching of cervix
    • stretch sensitive nerve cells in cervix
    • input - nerve impulses

  90. Saturated
    This means that the liquid has dissolved all of the solute that is possible. If you add one teaspoon of sugar to iced tea, you've got an unsaturated solution. If you keep adding sugar to iced tea, you eventually get to the point where the rest of the sugar just sinks to the bottom. When this happens, it means that the solution is saturated, because no more sugar could dissolve.
  91. Unsaturated
    This means that if you were to add more solute to the liquid, it would keep dissolving. For example, if you take one teaspoon of salt and put it in a bucket of water, you've made an unsaturated solution. (In other words, if you added another teaspoon of salt, it would dissolve, too).
  92. cell membrane structure
    • 1. works as a barrier between the inner and outer surface of a cell. In animal cells, the plasma membrane is present in the outer most layer of the cell and in plant cell it is present just beneath the cell wall.
    • 2. primarily composed of proteins and lipids. While lipids help to give membranes their flexibility and proteins monitor and maintain the cell's chemical climate and assist in the transfer of molecules across the membrane.
    • 3 lipid bilayer is semi-permeable, which allows only selected molecules to diffuse across the membrane.
  93. cell membrane function
    • 1. separates the contents of the cell from its outside environment and it regulates what enters and exits the cell
    • 2. plays a vital role in protecting the integrity of the interior of the cell by allowing only selected substances into the cell and keeping other substances out
    • 3. serves as a base of attachment for the cytoskeleton in some organisms and the cell wall in others. Thus it supports the cell and helps in maintaining the shape of the cell.
  94. Passive Transport
    • Simple diffusion - a process whereby a substance passes through a membrane without the aid of an intermediary such as a integral membrane protein.
    • Osmosis - movement of solvent molecules through a partially permeable membrane into a region of higher solute concentration
    • Facilitated Diffusion - the process of spontaneous passive transport (as opposed to active transport) of molecules or ions across a biological membrane via specific integral proteins
  95. Active Transport
    • 1. Endocytosis
    • 2. Exocytosis
  96. Endocytosis
    an energy-using process by which cells absorb molecules (such as proteins) by engulfing them. It is used by all cells of the body because most substances important to them are large polar molecules that cannot pass through the hydrophobic plasma or cell membrane.
  97. Exocytosis
    • energy-consuming process by which a cell directs the contents of secretory vesicles out of the cell membrane and into the extracellular space. These membrane-bound vesicles contain soluble proteins to be secreted to the extracellular environment, as well as membrane proteins and lipids that are sent to become components of the cell membrane.
    • [1. secretory cells that liberate digestive enzmes, hormones, mucus or other secretons 2. nerve cells that release neurotransmitters]
  98. Hypotonic
    the total molar concentration of all dissolved solute particles is less than that of another solution or less than that of a cell. If concentrations of dissolved solutes are less outside the cell than inside, the concentration of water outside is correspondingly greater. When a cell is exposed to such hypotonic conditions, there is net water movement into the cell.
  99. Isotonic
    movement of water out of the cell is exactly balanced by movement of water into the cell
  100. Hypertonic
    the total molar concentration of all dissolved solute particles is greater than that of another solution, or greater than the concentration in a cell. If concentrations of dissolved solutes are greater outside the cell, the concentration of water outside is correspondingly lower. As a result, water inside the cell will flow outwards to attain equilibrium, causing the ceil to shrink. As cells lose water, they lose the ability to function or divide.

  150. osteoblasts
    • blasts -> build bone
    • building cells. synthesize and secrete collagen fibers and other organic components needed to build the extracellular matrix of bone tissue, and they initiate calcification.
  151. osteocytes

  152. osteoclasts
    • clasts -> break down
    • huge cellsconcentrated in the endosteum - on the side that faces the bone surface - deeply folded into a ruffled border. Causes RESORPTION
  153. hormones involved in calcium homeostasis: CT, PTH, Calcitriol, estrogen, IFGs
    • Bones play an important role in regulating blood calcium levels, which must be maintained within narrow limits for functions such as muscle contraction and membrane potentials to occur normally.
    • hypocalcemia: deficiency of blood calcium
    • hypercalcemia: excess of blood calcium
    • Bone is the major storage site for calcium in the body, and movement of calcium into and out of bone helps to determine blood calcium levels.
    • Calcium moves into bone as osteoblasts build new bone and out of bone as osteoclasts break down bone.
    • The hormones parathyroid hormone (PTH) and calcitonin help regulate blood calcium levels.
    • Calcitonin, secreted by the thyroid gland inhibits osteoclasts and stimulates osteoblasts, thus decreasing blood calcium levels.
    • Parathyroid hormone is secreted by the parathyroid glands, which are on the posterior side of the thyroid. Parathyroid hormone inhibits osteoblasts, stimulates osteoclasts, reduces the output of calcium by the kidneys and promotes the absorption of calcium by the small intestines, thus increasing blood calcium levels.

  175. Anatomy of the Sarcomere
    • 1. An entire array of thick and thin filaments between the Z disks
    • 2. The thick filaments produce the dark A band
    • 3. The thin filaments extend in each direction from the Z disk. Where they do not overlapthe thick filaments, they create the light I band
    • 4. The H zone is that portion of the A band where the thick and thin filaments do not over lap
    • 5. The M line runs through the exact center of the sarcomere. Molecules of the giant protein, titin, extend from the M line to the Z disk. One of its functions is to provide elasticity to the muscle. It also provides a scaffold for the assembly of a precise number of myosin molecules in the thick filament (294 in one case). It may also dictate the number of actin molecules in the thin filaments.
  176. Sequence the events of skeletal muscle contraction
    • 1. An electrical signal (action potential) travels down a nerve, causing it to release a chemical message (neurotransmitter) into a small gap between the nerve cell and muscle cell. This gap is called the synapse.
    • 2. The neurotransmitter crosses the gap, binds to a protein (receptor) on the muscle-cell membrane and causes an action potential in the muscle cell.
    • 3. The action potential rapidly spreads along the muscle cell and enters the cell through the T-tubule.
    • 4. The action potential opens gates in the muscle's calcium store (sarcoplasmicreticulum).
    • 5. Calcium ions flow into the sarcoplasm, which is where the actin and myosin filaments are.
    • 6. Calcium ions bind to troponin-tropomyosin molecules located in the grooves of the actin filaments. Normally, the rod-like tropomyosin molecule covers the sites on actin where myosin can form cross-bridges.
    • 7. Upon binding calcium ions, troponin changes shape and slides tropomyosin out of the groove, exposing the actin-myosin binding sites.
    • 8. Myosin interacts with actin by cycling cross-bridges, as described previously. The muscle thereby creates force, and shortens.
    • 9. After the action potential has passed, the calcium gates close, and calcium pumps located on the sarcoplasmic reticulum remove calcium from the cytoplasm.
    • 10. As the calcium gets pumped back into the sarcoplasmic reticulum, calcium ions come off the troponin.
    • 11. The troponin returns to its normal shape and allows tropomyosin to cover the actin-myosin binding sites on the actin filament.
    • 12. Because no binding sites are available now, no cross-bridges can form, and the muscle relaxes.
  177. order of the reactions which produce ATP in skeletal muscle
    • 1. adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is split into adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and phosphate to supply the energy for muscle contraction.
    • 2. free energy released by the ATP when the phosphate is split off is transferred to the heads on the myosin filaments.
    • 3. heads move and store potential energy in their new position. When the heads interact withactin, the energy is used to slide the filaments past one another transferring the energy into movement (kinetic energy).
  178. Neuron cells

  189. Excitatory Postsynaptic Potentials (ESPSs)
    • 1. a graded potential that makes the membrane potential less negative or more positive, thus making the postsynaptic cell more likely to have an action potential.
    • 3. caused by the influx of Na+or Ca*2 from the extracellular space into the neuron or muscle cell. when the presynaptic neuron has an action potential, Ca++ enters the axon terminal via voltage-dependent calcium channels and causes exocytosis of synaptic vesicles, causing neurotransmitter to be released.
    • 4. transmitter diffuses across the synaptic cleft and activates ligand-gated ion channels that mediate the EPSP. the amplitude of the EPSP is directly proportional to the number of synaptic vesicles that were released. if the EPSP is not large enough to trigger an action potential, the membrane subsequently repolarizes to its resting membrane potential. this shows the temporary and reversible nature of graded potentials.
  190. Inhibitory Postsynaptic Potentials (IPSPs)
    • 1. a graded potential that makes the membrane potential more negative, and make the postsynaptic cell less likely to have an action potential
    • 2. hyperpolarization of membranes is caused by influx of CI- or efflux of K+. as with EPSPs, the amplitude of the IPSP is directly proportional to the number of synaptic vesicles that were released.
  191. event sequences of an action potential
    • 1. a stimulus is received by the dendrites of a nerve cell. this causes the Na*channels to open. if the opening is sufficient to drive the interior potential from -70 mV up to -55 mV, the process continues.
    • 2. having reached the action threshold, more Na* channels (sometimes called voltage-gated channels) open. the Na*influx drives the interior of the cell membrane up to about +30 mV. the process to this point is called depolarization.
    • 3. Na*channels close and the K* channels open. since the K* channels are much slower to open, the depolarization has time to be completed. having both Na* and K* channels open at the same time would drive the system toward neutrality and prevent the creation of the action potential.
    • 4. with the K* channels open, the membrane begins to repolarize back toward its rest potential.
    • 5. repolarization typically overshoots the rest potential to about -90 mV. this is called hyperpolarization and would seem to be counter productive, but it is actually important in the transmission of information. hyperpolarization prevents the neuron from receiving another stimulus during this time, or at least raises the threshold for any new stimulus. part of the importance of hyperpolarization is in preventing any stimulus already sent up an axon from triggering another action potential in the opposite direction. in other words, hyperpolarization assures that the signal is proceeding in one direction.
    • 6. after hyperpolarization, the Na+/K+ pump eventually brings the membrane back to its resting state of -70 mV.

    • 4. motor neuron
    • 5. effector
    • The receptor hosts the dendrite of the sensory neuron as well as the initiation of the entire process, the initiation of nerve impulse. The sensory neuron is responsible for relaying the impulse through the posterior root of the central nervous system, where the center is located. One or two interneurons, or association neurons are involved in this process. At this point, the arc is made, and the process of synapse permits other parts ofthe body to receive the necessary impulses. The effector organ, which is almost always a skeletal muscle, then receive the required information through the impulses sent via a motor neuron. The response initiated by the effector organ is known as a reflex action. This is what most people refer to as reflexes.
