Study of the functions or activities performed by the body's struture.
dense active protoplasm found in the center of the cell, plays an important part in cell reproduction and metabolism
Chemical process taking place in living organisms whereby the cells are nourished and carry out their activities
constructive metabolism; the process of building up larger molecules from smaller ones
the phase of metabolism that involves the breaking down of complex compounds within the cells into smaller ones resulting in the release of energy to preform functions such as muscular movement or digestion
structures composed of specialized tissues and preforming specfic functions
physical foundation of the body comprised of 206 bones that vary in size and shape and are connected by movable and immovable joints
hindmost bone of the skull, below the parietal bones; forms the back of the head up to the crown
forms the forehead

smaller bone in the forearm on the same side as the thumb
A heavy , longbone that forms the leg above the knee
also called the accessory bone, forms the knee cap joint
part of the muscle at the more movable attachment to the skelton
part of the muscle that does not move; it is attached to the skeleton and is usually part of a skeletal muscle.
middle part of the muscle
orbicularis oculi muscle
ring muscle of the eye socket; enables you to close your eyes
muscle that covers the back of the neck and upper and middle region of the back; rotates and controls swinging movements of the arms
muscles that seperate the fingers
muscles at the base of each finger that draw the fingers together
central nervous system
consists of the brain spinal cord , spinal nerves, and cranial nerves
5th cranial nerve
largest of the cranial nerves; main sensory nerve of the face, and serve as the motor nerve of the muscles that control chewing
7th cranial nervous
cheif motor nerve of the face
part of the centrl nervous system containted in the cranium; largest and most complex nerve tissue; controls sensations , muscles, gland activity, and the power to think and fell emotions
ductless glands that release hormaonal secretions directly into the bloodstream
fibrous tissue that binds together , protects, and supports the various parts of the body such as bone, cartiliage, and tendons
bones of the fingers or the toes
thick-walled , muscular, flexible tubes that carry oxygenated blodd away from the heart to the capillaries
thin -walled blood vessels that are less elastic than arteries; viens contain cup-like valves to prevent backflow and carry impure blood from various capillaries back to the heart and lungs
the skin and its acessory organs, such as the oil and sweat glands, sensory receptors, hair, and nails.
muscles extending from the zygomatic bone to the angle of the mouth; elevate the lip, as in laughing

the reproduction process involving the daughter cells is called?
carries messages to and from the brain and controls and coordinates all bodily functions.
the connection between two or more bones of the skeleton
all the protoplasma of a cell that surrounds the nucleus. the watery fluid that the cell needs for growth, reproduction, and self repair.
a collection of similar cells that preform a particular function.
blood,lymph, carries food, waste products, and hormones through the body.
special cells that make up the nerves, brain, and spinal cord.
an oval bony case that protects the brain, and the facial skeleton. It is made up of 8 bones..
this part of the skeletal system consist of 14 bones
forms the sides of the head in the ear region
this part of the skeletal system consist of 3 bones
Skeletal muscles; they are attached to the bones and are voluntary or consciously controlled.
Muscle of the neck that lowers and rotates the head.
Muscle located beneath the frontalis and orbicularis oculi that draws the eyebrow down and wrinkles the forehead vertically
extensor muscles of the wrists, involved in bending the wrist.
whitish cords made up of bundles of nerve fibers held together by connective tissue, through which impulses are transmitted
an automatic nerve reaction to a stimulus that involves the movement of an impulse from a sensory receptor along the sensory nerve to the spinal cord
a clear yellowish fluid that circulates in the lymphatics of the body. It carries waste and impurities away from the cells
common carotid arteries
The main sources or branches of blood supply to the head, neck and face are
duct glands..produce a substance that travels through small tube-like ducts. sweat and oil glands belong to this group
