Study of structure
Sub Divisions of anatomy
Gross or Maicroscopic
Sub divison of anatomy(Gross Macroscopic)
Ex.Regional, Surface, and systemic Anatomy
Sub division of anatomy (Microscopic)
ex. Cytology and Histology
Sub Divisions of anatomy (Development)
The study of function
Subdivisons are based on organ systems (ex. Digestive system, cardiovascular, and Nervous system)
Levels of structural organization
Chemical>Cellular>Tissue>Organs>Organ system>Oraganismal(all organ systems)
Maintanace of a relatively stable internal environment despite continous outside changes.
Mechanisms of control (Homeostasis)
Like a sensor, it monitors enviroments and responds to stimule .
Receives input from receptor and determines appropriate response
Recieves output from control center, provides means to respond, responese acts to either reduce or enhnces the stimuli.
