What are the four tissue types? Epithelial Connective Nerve Muscle
What is Physiologic and Pathologic Hypertrophy? Give an example. Enlarging tissues Physiologic occurs due to normal stressor ex. enlarging of skeletal muscle due to exercise Pathologic occurs due to abnormal stressor ex. growth of heart due to heart disease
What is the definition of Physiologic and Pathologic Hyperplasia? Give an example. More tissue Physiologic occurs due to normal stressor ex. growth in mammary glands during pregnancy Pathologic occurs to due abnormal stressor ex. growth in adrenal glands due to hormones
What is a first degree burn? Epidermis only Ex. sunburn

What are squamous cells? Forms the surface of the skin, lines hollow organs of the body.
What are basal cells? Cell in the innermost layer of epidermis
What is the axial body division? The center of the body, everything excluding the limbs
What is the appendicular body division? Upper and lower extremities (arms and legs)
What is the Midsagittal Plane? Plane that divides the body into left and right halves
What is the Coronal Plane? Plane that divides the body into dorsal and ventral halves. (front and back)
