What is bile? Where's it at? Where does it function? What does it do there? Substance produced by liver which helps emulsify secreted into duodenum from liver and breaks down fat droplets
List secretions from stomach and explain their importance in digestion. Hydrochloric acid-accounts for stomachs ph can tightly control acid producing process. Pepsinogen- precurser for the enzyme pepcin.
List two sphincter muscles of the stomach and describe their location. Pyloric- proximal end of duodenum between the small intestine and pylorus. Esophageal- proximal end of stomach.
What is chyme? Partially digested food that leaves stomach and enters duodenum.
What is chyle? milky lymph from the intestines consisting primarily of small molecules of absorbed fats.
What is the forestomach in a ruminent animal? compartments of differing sizes and functions that swallowed material must pass through before reaching the abomasum.

Fermentation in the rumen normally generates lots of ________? Gas
List the sections of the large intestine in order? Cecum, ascending colon, descending colon, rectum, anus
What's the cecum? Blind pouch leading off from where the ileum meets the colon; in non ruminant herbivores it can be well developed.
What's colitis? Inflammation of the large intestine
Explain the differences between diabetes insipidus and diabetes mellitus their deficiencies of what hormones? And from what gland? Insipidus is when the pituitary is not releasing enough Antiduretic hormone (tasteless pee) Mellitus deficiency in insulin, high glucose levels in blood. Pancreatic gland.
What two hormones control blood levels of calcium? What gland produces each? Parathyroid hormone from parathyroid gland and calcitonin from thyroid gland.
What is the major steroid producing gland in the body? Adrenel gland
Where is insulin and glycagen produced? What effect do they have on the body? Pancreatic gland for both. Insulin lowers blood glucose level. Glucagon raises blood glucose levels.
ACTH, FSH, LH, TSH, are hormones produced by the______ Pituitary
The endocrine gland that greatly affects the body's metabolic rate is______ Anteritor Pituitary
Epinephrine and norepinephrine are produced in what gland? Adrenal medulla
what is the peripheral nervous system (LMN) efferent pathways of the peripheral nervous system containing the nerves off of the brain and spinal cord
what is the central nervous system (UMN) ultimately control lower motor neuron activity, having the "upper hand" which contains the brain and spinal cord
sensory neural pathway afferent pathway; carry impulses from the peripheral nervous system towards the central nervous system
motor neural pathway efferent pathway; carry impulses away from the central nervous system
function and location of the axon located on one end of a nerve fiver which carry impulses away from the cell body
function and location of the dendrite located on the opposite end of a nerve fiber and receives and relays impulses towards the cell body
function and location of the cell body located at the midpoint between the axon and dendrite; controls the nerve fiber
function and location of the myelin sheath located around the nerve fiber and provides for insulation
what are neuroglial cells they support the neural tissue
what is responsible for skeletal muscle control? cerebellum
what is the larges part of the brain, divided into 2 hemispheres? cerebrum
the connective tissue covering over the brain and spinal cord is called the? meninges
what are the three levels of the meninges superficial to deep? dura mater, arachnoid, pia mater
a spinal block used for local anesthesia is injected into the what? subarachnoid space
what prevents the movement of potentially harmful substances into the brain blood-brain barrier
the cushion of fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord is called cerebrospinal fluid
where is cerebrospinal fluid produced and located produced in the ventricles of the brain by specialized clusters of capillaries fro the pia mater where it is located
a radiographic procedure in which radiopaque dye is injected into a meningeal pace to detect abnormalities in the vertebral canal is called myelogram
caudal equina is found where, what does it look like, and what is its purpose? found in the lumbar/lumbosacral area, branched ou like a horse's tail, and prevents the cord from flopping and bumping against the bones canal
what is a reflex action involuntary movement made from a reaction to a stimuli
sympathetic system and what it secretes provides for flight of fight responses and secretes nonrepinephrine, at the synapse
parasympathetic system and what it secretes counter effect of sumpathetic system, rest and repose action and secrete acetylcholine
