  1. Claudius Galen (130-216 AD)
  2. Carbohydrates (Cell Membrane)
  3. Hypothalamus
  4. Phospholipid Bilayer
  5. Structure of Sweat Gland
  1. a * Deep glandular portion in the dermis innervated by sympathetic fibers
    * Coiled duct opens to skin surface via a pore
  2. b Organ which is the body's thermostat by monitoring the temperature of the blood and signals it receives from the body's cold - hot receptors. It can respond to temperature changes as small as 0.01 °C. Regulates body core to 98.6 - 99.7 °F.
  3. c Animal dissector; circulation of the blood through the chambers of the heart, arteries carry blood not air; contributed to the understanding of the nervous system; first to describe the functions of the brain, the role of nerve cells and the spinal cord in sensory and motor functions.
  4. d These cells are found only on outer half of the lipid bilayer as a thin sugar coating, called the cell coat or glycocalyx. Cell communication: receptors for binding hormones, cell adhesion (cohesive tissue), immune reaction.
  5. e Low permeability to water-soluble substances (e.g. ions, glucose, and amino acids), but permeable to lipid-soluble substances (e.g. fatty acids, oxygen, and carbon dioxide).

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. Different types of cells with the same intercellular substance; have a specific function.
  2. Nutrient concentration; oxygen/carbon dioxide concentration; waste product concentration; pH; salt and ion concentration; temperature.
  3. potassium, magnesium, phosphates, and proteins (synthesized by the cells)
  4. Transfer of heat from the body by currents (air and water).
  5. Comprised of Neurons and Neuroglia.

5 True/False questions

  1. Heat Loss from SkinProlonged heat exposure with high humidity. Body gains heat by radiation and convection while evaporative cooling is retarded. Can lead to convulsions, coma, and death.


  2. (Skin as) InsulatorWhile blood is kept below adipose tissue, a poor conductor of heat, skin is {this}.


  3. Chemical Thermogenesis Long-Term EffectIncreased metabolic rate (20-30%), more nutrients utilized, more calories consumed.


  4. Survivable Ambient Temperature RangeExposure to cold temperatures down to 55 °F or hot temperatures up to 130 °F. (Subject nude in dry air.)


  5. Heat ExhaustionCaused by sever electrolyte loss, hypotension, dizziness, vomiting, and fainting. Leads to decreased blood pressure, cardiac output, organ failure, and death.
