Anatomy and Physiology I

TermDefinition
Anatomy The science or the biological study of the shape and structure of organisms and their pars, molecules, cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems
Gross Anatomy The biological study of the organs parts and structures that are visible to the naked eye.
Physiology The biological study and science of the functions of living organisms and their parts, molecules, cells, tissues, organs and organ systems.
Cell The smallest structural unit f an organism that is capable of independent functioning, consisting of one or more nuclei, cytoplasm, and various organelles, all surrounded by a semipermeable cell membrane.
Cell physiology The biological study of the functions of living cells, the functions of their organelles and all biochemical aspects of cell metabolism.
Tissue An organized collection of two or more different cell types and associated intercellular matrix action together to perform one or more specific functions in the body.
Name two basic types of tissues Epithelial and connective
Name five specific types of tissues epidermal, bone, muscle, gland, nervous.
Cytology the branch of biology that deals with formation, structure and function of cells, with an emphasis on the internal appearance and structure of cells and their organelles, especially the nucleus;
What branch of study is applied to detect cancer cells? cytology
Histology=microscopic=microanatomy The anatomical study of microscopic structure of animal and plant tissues with emphasis on which cellular and intercellulaar structures distinguish one tissue from another;
organ a differentiated part of an organism, compromised of two or more tissues that performs a specific function.
Regional anatomy the study of the organs parts, structures of a specific region of the body. (e.g cranial anatomy, anatomy of the hand etc.)
Organ system a group of interacting, interrelated, or interdependent organs forming a complex functional whole; the set of organs of the body regarded as a functional physiological unit.
Systemic anatomy The study of the structure and location of the body parts, system by system; the study of specific organs, parts, and structures of a specific organ system of the body (nervous system anatomy, reproductive anatomy, skeletal anatomy)
