Study of how the body functions
Study of disease
Anything that upsets the normal structure or function of the body
Basic unit of life
Specialized groups of cells
Tissues that function together
Organs working together for the same purpose
Body systems
Highest level of organization
Living organism
What body system is the protective organs: skin, hair, nails, sweat, and oil glands?
What body system is the framework of the body?
What body system produces movement?
What body system provides coordination and control of the body and interprets sensory information ( sight, hearing, taste, feeling)
What body system controls the function of the glands and produces special hormones that regulate activities, such as growth, food utilization, and reproduction?
What are the two body systems that support coordination and control?
Nervous and Endocrine
What are the three body systems that support protection support and movement?
Integumentary,Skeletal and Muscular
What are the two body systems that support circulation?
Cardiovascular and Lymphatic
What body system pumps blood to all body tissues?
What body system brings fluids from tissues back to blood and aids in immunity?
What three body systems support nutrition and fluid balance?
Respiratory, Digestive and Urinary
The purpose of this system is gas exchange.
The purpose of this system is digestion and absorption of nutrients;elimination of wastes.
The purpose of this system is to filter the blood and forms urine.
This body system is concerned with perpetuation of life.
Physical and chemical processes by which an organism is maintained.
Metabolism is divided into a breakdown phase and a building phase. What are these two phases called?
Catabolism (breakdown phase) and Anabolism (building phase)
Complex substances broken down into simpler compounds.
Breaking down phase
of simple to complex.
Building up phase of simple compounds used to manufacture materials needed for: Growth,Function and Repair of tissues.
What is energy from the breakdown of nutrients (catabolic reactions) and "Energy currency" of the cells?
Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP)
All bodily fluids outside the cells.
Extracellular fluids
What do Extracellular fluids do?
Bathes the cells, transports nutrients to and from cells and transports waste from cells.
What fluids are contained within the cells and also called cytoplasm.
Intracellular fluids
The state of internal balance is called what?
The main method for maintaining homeostasis is what?
Feedback Mechanisms
There are two types of feedback mechanisms. What are they?
Negative feedback and Positive feedback
This mechanisms conditions are kept within a normal range by reversing any upward or downward shift is called what?
Negative feedback
This mechanism given action promotes more of the same until stimulus is removed or outside force stops the cycle.
Positive feedback
