    A non-living material that surrounds tissue
  3. Define tissue
    A group of cells that specialize for some specific function

  5. *Epithelial Tissue*
    Example for Serous membrane
  6. *Epithelial Tissue*

  7. Define Collagenous Fibers
    Tough and strong fibers with minimal stretch ability and high tensile strength
  8. Define Reticular Fibers
    Delicate fibers found in stretchy tissues
  9. Define Elastic Fibers
    Exensible fibers found in stretchy tissues
  10. Define Connective Tissue
    Most abundant tissue in the body

    Large amounts of dense fibrous and small amount of matrix
  13. Where is Elastic cartilage found?
    Ear and larynx
  14. Define bone
    A hard mineralized matrix which provides framwork for the body
  15. Define blood
    • "liquid tissue"
    • Floating plasma, contains no fibers

    • Cardiac
    • smooth
  17. What types of muscle tissues are involuntary?
    • Cardiac
    • Smooth
  18. Define Homeostasis
    Balance, the relatively constant state maintained by the physiology of the body
  19. Define Stress
    any simulus internal or external that creates imbalance in out internal environment
  20. Define sensor machanism
    Generates an impulse in response to an afferent electrical or chemical signal
  21. Define Afferent
    Toward a center or point of refrence
  22. Define Intergration *Control Center*
    Analyzes and integrates all singals received and initiates a response
  23. Define Effector Mechanism
    actualizes the efferent response from the control center
  24. Define Efferent
    Away from center or point of reference
  25. What's positive feedback from stress
    Enhances the original stimulus

    Example: Feeding into the emotion
  26. What's a negitive feedback from stress
    Reverses the original stimulus

    Example: Having the feeling go away
