Organ System Level
The human organism is made up of many organ systems.
This body system forms the external body covering, and protects deeper tissues from injury. Synthesizes vitamin D, and houses cutaneous (pain, pressure, etc.), receptors and sweat and oil glands.
This body system protects and supports body organs, and provides a framework the muscles use to cause movement. Blood cells are formed within bones. Bones store minerals.
This body system allows manipulation of the environment, locomotion, and facial expression. Maintains posture and produces heat.
This body system is the fast-acting control system of the body, it responds to internal and external changes by activating appropriate muscles and glands.
