  1. Sympathetic DivisionOne of the tree divisions of the autonomic nervous system; generally increases energy expenditure and prepares the body for action (Fight or Flight) - causes increase in heart rate, breathing, slows digestion, liver releases glucose, inhibits emptying of bladder, releases adrenaline from adrenal medulla situations:(emergency, embarrassment, exercise, excitement)


  2. TroponinThe regulatory protein that control the position of tropomyosin on the thin filament.


  3. OrgansA specialized center of body function composed of several different types of tissues


  4. Muscle TissueTissue made up of neurons and supportive cells.


  5. Parasympathetic DivisionOne of the three divisions of the autonomic nervous system; consists of networks of neurons in the digestive tract, pancreas, and gall bladder; normally regulated by the sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions of the autonomic nervous system. (secretions + peristalsis can function independently from parasympathetic and sympathetic but can also be affected by it)
