5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. Receptor
  2. Total Blood Volume
  3. Robert Hooke
  4. Middle Ages
  5. Heat Stroke
  1. a Monitors changes in a controlled condition, a desired value or set point, by sensors through an afferent pathway.
  2. b Dominated by theology; Saint Augustine believed that all natural phenomena had supernatural causes; Dark Ages.
  3. c Prolonged heat exposure with high humidity. Body gains heat by radiation and convection while evaporative cooling is retarded. Can lead to convulsions, coma, and death.
  4. d Built the first compound microscope; coined "cell"; used microscope to study how insect feed adhered to wet slippery surfaces.
  5. e ~ 5.1 liters in adults

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. Cytoplasm (in cell outside of nucleus); Nucleoplasm (in nucleus).
  2. Published a textbook "The Canon of Medicine", leading authority for 600 years in Europe.
  3. Cold temperature → cold receptor...sensory fibers → primary motor center → bilateral tracts down brain stem → lateral column of spinal cord → anterior motor neuron → skeletal muscles → alternating contraction in muscles (~4 fold increase in heat production)
  4. Crisis of fever occurring at the end of febrile condition. Patient has 105 °F temperature, hypothalamus trying to maintain 98.6 °F and is still hot, leads to intense sweating and vasodilatation causing the skin to be hot.
  5. Joint friction, blood flow, other movements generate some energy.

5 True/False questions

  1. Thermoregulation22% of heat loss. Sweat glands and exhalation provide liquid. Water off skin and out of lungs occurs at a rate of 450-600 mL/day = 12-16 kcal/hour of heat.


  2. Neuroglia60% found in the brain, 1 trillion cells, 100 billion in brain, communicate via action potentials, generate action and electrical potentials.


  3. Cell Volume(Intracellular fluid component) ~1.6 liters in adults


  4. Efferent NeuronsMotor neurons that are fibers from the central nervous system to effectors like muscles.


  5. Positive FeedbackA rapid self-amplifying cycle; a physiological change leads to greater changes in the same direction; the response ENHANCES the original stimulus; unstable, less frequent, and may be destructive.
