5 Matching questions

  1. Phospholipid Bilayer
  2. Cell Volume
  3. Nervous Tissue
  4. Convection
  5. Flush
  1. a Transfer of heat from the body by currents (air and water).
  2. b (Intracellular fluid component) ~1.6 liters in adults
  3. c Comprised of Neurons and Neuroglia.
  4. d 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. e 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 Multiple choice questions

  1. When blood travels above adipose tissue, skin is {this}.
  2. 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.
  3. Organ or tissues that receive information (output) from the control center and produces a response.
  4. While blood is kept below adipose tissue, a poor conductor of heat, skin is {this}.
  5. Epinephrine, nor epinephrine, and thyroxin cause uncoupling to occur reducing the number of ATP's produced in the electron transport in the aerobic pathway. Fewer ATP's results in greater heat (26 less ATP * 7.3 kcal / ATP = 189.9 kcal of heat). Infants can double heat production; adults can have a 10-15% increase.

5 True/False questions

  1. HomeostasisMetabolic equilibrium actively maintained by several complex biological mechanisms that operate via the autonomic nervous system to offset disrupting changes.


  2. ECF (Composition %)Body composed 20% of {this} fluid (15% ISF and 5% Plasma)


  3. Total Blood VolumeProlonged 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. Performance of WorkJoint friction, blood flow, other movements generate some energy.


  5. InnateBasic unit of physiological anatomy; comprised of one or more tissue types; has definite shape and function.
