Chapter 1: Introduction to the Human Body
• • • • • • • • • • • • • Define anatomy and physiology, and name several subspecialties of these sciences. Describe the levels of structural organization that make up the human body. List the 11 systems of the human body, representative organs present in each, and their general functions. Define the important life processes of the human body. Define homeostasis and explain its relationship to interstitial fluid. Define homeostasis. Describe the components of a feedback system. Contrast the operation of negative and positive feedback systems. Explain how homeostatic imbalances are related to disorders. Describe the anatomical position. Relate the common names to the corresponding anatomical descriptive terms for various regions of the human body. Define the anatomical planes, sections, and directional terms used to describe the human body. Outline the major body cavities, the organs they contain, and their associated linings.

Chapter 2: The Chemical Level of Organization
• • • • • • • • • • • • • Identify the main chemical elements of the human body. Describe the structures of atoms, ions, molecules, free radicals, and compounds. Define a chemical reaction. Describe the various forms of energy. Compare exergonic and endergonic chemical reactions. Describe the role of activation energy and catalysts in chemical reactions. Describe synthesis, decomposition, exchange, and reversible reactions. Describe the properties of water and those of inorganic acids, bases, and salts. Distinguish among solutions, colloids, and suspensions. Define pH and explain the role of buffer systems in homeostasis. Describe the functional groups of organic molecules. Identify the building blocks and functions of carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins. Describe the structure and functions of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), ribonucleic acid (RNA), and adenosine triphosphate (ATP).

Chapter 3: The Cellular Level of Organization
• • • • Describe the structure and functions of the plasma membrane. Explain the concept of selective permeability. Define the electrochemical gradient and describe its components. Describe the processes that transport substances across the plasma membrane.
