Lab Practical 1
Formed by the skull bones
Formed by the bones of the vertebral column
Ventral Cavity (Coelom)
flat muscular sheet, divides the ventral body cavity into a superior thoracic cavity and an inferior abdominopelvic cavity
surrounded by chest wall and diaphragm
Surrounds the lungs
Contains the trachea, esophagus, and major vessels. Also contains the pericardial cavity.
the chamber that surrounds the heart
enclosed by the abdominal wall and by the bones and muscles of the pelvis
Contains many digestive glands and organs
Contains urinary bladder, reproductive organs, last portion of the digestive tract
Parietal Pleura membrane
covers the mediastinal surface and the inner body wall
covers the outer surfaces of the lungs
an inflammation of the pleura the lining of the pleural cavity surrounding the lungs
Swelling and irritation of the pericardium, the thin sac-like membrane that surrounds your heart.
Parietal peritoneal membrane
the inner surface of the body wall
Visceral peritoneal membrane
covers the organs within the abdomen
infection of the peritoneum, a silk-like membrane that lines your inner abdominal wall and covers the organs within your abdomen.
Subdivides the body into anterior and posterior parts
Transverse (Horizontal) plane
Divides the body into superior and inferior parts
Divides the body into equal right and left halves
Divides the body into
left and right parts
Divides the body into superior and inferior parts at an angle

palm of hand
Sole of foot
Area posterior to the knee
Anterior region of the pelvis
Posterior region between the hip bones
Anterior middle region of the thorax
Posterior part of leg
Root of the foot
Chest or thorax
Cell membrane (Plasma membrane)
The outer boundary of the cell. A sheet of lipid molecules (bilayer) with proteins embedded in it. Controls the movement of materials into and out of the cytoplasm.
Intracellular fluid contains dissolved nutrients, ions, soluble and insoluble proteins & waste products
Contains most of the cell's genetic material in the DNA that makes up the chromatin fibers of the chromosomes.
The double membrane structure that surrounds the nucleus and separate it from the rest of the cytoplasm. Has nuclear pores that allow for communication between the nucleus and the cytoplasm
Site in the nucleus where ribosomes are synthesized
Complex of the DNA & proteins in the nucleus of a eukaryotic cell
Stacked, membrane bound sacs. involved in processing macromolecules for the secretion & delivery to other components of the cell.
lacks ribosomes and is involved in lipid synthesis
Part of the ER that is studded with ribosomes that are synthesizing proteins
Particles composed of RNA & protein that are involved with messenger RNA in the synthesis of proteins
Organelles present in eukaryotic cells. Are often referred to as the power house of the cells because they are the site of aerobic respiration that combines oxygen with food molecules to generate ATP.
An area involved in the development of microtubules that are necessary for cell movements.
A short cylindrical array of nine triplet microtubules.
Structures in the cytoplasm that may contain enzymes, crystals & dissolved materials.
Relatively long slender extensions of plasma membrane; found on cells lining the reproductive & respiratory tract
Small projections of the plasma membrane that increase the surface area exposed tp the extracellular environment
used to propel a cell through fluid; found on sperm
Part of the membrane structure & cannot be removed without damaging or destroying the membrane
Only found on one side, either the inner or outer surface of the membrane and are easily separated from it
