Anatomy & Physiology

  1. Atoms
    Building Blocks
  2. Parietal
    Cavity Lining
  3. Homeostasis
    Maintain a stable internal environment withing narrow limits regardless of environmental changes
  4. Abdominal
  5. Organelles
    Basic components of microscopic cells
  6. Organism
    the loving human being
  7. Physiology
    the study of function
  8. normal body temperature
    98.6 or around there
  9. Visceral
    Organ cover
  10. Organ system
    Organs that work together to accomplish a common purpose
  11. Cephalic (5)
    • Frontal (forehead)
    • Orbital (eye socket)
    • Nasal
    • Oral
    • Mental (jaw)
  12. Organ
    A discrete structure (composed of least 2 tissue types) that performs a specific function of the body
  13. Negative Feedback
    (Includes most homeostatic control mechanism) Shuts off original stimulus or reduces intensity.
  14. Pelvic (1)
    Inguinal (groin)
  15. Cells
    Smallest units of living things
  16. Anatomy
    The study of structure
  17. Positive Feedback
    Increases the original stimulus to push the variable further away from the set point. Only occurrence in blood clotting, birth of a baby, and sexual response. [Could be harmful]
  18. Levels of structurla organization
    Chemicals - Organelles - Cells - Tissues - Organs - Organ System - Organism
  19. Tissue
    Group of cells that have a common function
  20. Thoracic (3)
    • Sternal
    • Axillary
    • Mammary
  21. Maintaining Homeostatsis
    Receptor - Afferent pathway - Control Center (Determines set point) normal value the body is designed to maintain for a variable - Efferent pathway - Effector
