anatomical position when a person is standing facing you, with palms out and feet together
What are some examples of the body's ability to maintain homeostatis a)body temp. stays very constant b)BP stays within specific limits c)chemistry of the blood stays within certain normal limits
When does the balance of our inner environment change? Only when illness, disease, injury, or emotional disturbance occur
anterior toward front
ventral on the abdominal side

nucleus directs the activities of the cell, like a command center. It directs the growth of the cell and cell division
chromosomes threadlike structures that carry DNA
cytoplasm material surrounding the nucleus of a cell
metabolism process of the living cell in which oxygen is used and carbon dioxide is given off (called the work of the cell)
Tissue group of the same type of cells functioning in the same way
What are 5 categories that tissues are grouped into? 1)epithelial 2)connective 3)nervous 4)blood and lymph 5)muscular
cell membrane the edge of the cell. It keeps the protoplams in but allows certain other materials to pass in and out of the cell.
metabolism process of the living cell in which oxygen is used and carbon dioxide is given off (called the work of the cell)
Organ (tissues combine to form it) it is a body part where two or more tissues work together to perform a particular function
System consist of a group of organs that perform the same function.
Name the body systems 1)integumentary 2)digestive 3)skeletal 4)respiratory 5)muscular 6)circulatory 7)nervous 8)endocrine 9)urinary 10)reproductive
What happens when cancer invades the cell's normal mechanisms that control rate of growth? cell division and movements are destroyed.
What is noncancerous tumors called? canerous tumors? benign and malignant

chemotherapy use of medications to treat disease
What does the medication from chemotherapy do? interfere with the duplication and growth of the rapidly multiplying cancer cells. This affects normal cells as well
What chemotherapy drug affect bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract, mouth, hair, skin, reproductive system, urinary tract, emotional state

presbyopia lends loses its ability to focus clearly due to loss of elasticity
glaucoma increased pressure within the eye that can lead to blindness due to pressure on the optic nerve
What are the 3 main parts of the ear? outer ear, middle ear, and inner ear
outer ear leads to the small opening of the middle ear. The outer ear and middle ear is separated by the eardrum
How do we hear? Sound waves strike the eardrum (tympanic membrane), causing it to vibrate. The vibration causes the tiny bones to move. Through a complex process, sound stimuli are transmitted to nerves that transport the signal to the brain
