organization of atoms, molecules, and macromolecules results in living matter- a gel called_______ cytoplasm
Chemical structures organized to form _____ that perform individual funtios organelles
It is the functions of the ______ taht allow the cell to live organelles
Dozens of organelles have been identified, including: Mitochondria, Golgi Apparatus, Endoplasmic Reticulum
smallest & most numerous units that possess and exhibit characteristics of life Cells
each cell has a ______ surrounded by cytoplasm within a limiting membrane nucleus

there are ___ major planes which lie at right angles to each other 3
runs front to back to that sections through this plane divide the body (or body part) into right and left sides sagittal
a sagittal plan that sections the body or part into right and left halves midsagittal or median sagittal
runs lengthwise (side to side) and divides the body (or part) into anterior and posterior portions frontal (coronal) pane
is a "crosswise" plane and it divides the body (or part into upper and lower parts transverse
________________ of structure and function is an important and unifying concept in the study of anatomy and physiology complementarity
anatomical structures often seemed ________ to perform specific functions because of their unique size, shape, form or body location "designed"
Understanding the _______ of structure and function assists in the integration of otherwise isolated factual information interaction
used to describe the relatively constant states maintained by the body- internal environment around body cells remains constant homeostasis
the term homeostasis was coined by what American physiologist Walter B. Cannon
body adjusts important variables from a normal ______ in an acceptable or normal range "set point"
temperature regulation regulation of blood carbon dioxide level regulation of blood glucose level are all examples of homeostasis
devices for maintaining or restoring homeostasis by self-regulation through feedback control loops homeostatic control mechanisms
basic components of control mechanisms are sensor mechansims integrating, or control, center effector mechanism feedback
specific sensors detect and react to any changes from normal sensor mechanism
information is analyzed and integrated, and then if needed, a specific action is initiated integrating, or control, center
effectors directly influence controlled physiological variables effector mechanism
process of information about a variable constantly flowing back from the sensor to the integrator feedback
*are inhibitory *stabilize physiological variables *produce an action that is opposite to the change that activated the system *are responsible for maintaining homeostasis *are much more common that positive feedback control systems negative feedback control systems
*are stimulatory *amplify or reinforce the change that is occurring * tend to produce destablilizing effects and disrupt homeostasis *bring specific body functions to swift completion positive feedback control systems
occur when information flows ahead to another process or feedback loop to trigger a change in anticipation of an event that will follow feed-forward control systems
a) regulation within cells b)genes or enzymes can regulate cell processes intracellular control
a) regulation withing tissues or organs b) may involve chemical signals c) may involve other "built in" mechanisms intrinsic control (autoregulation)
a)regulation from organ to organ b) may involve nerve signals c) may involve endocrine signals (hormones) extrinsic control
