Introduction to animal form & function and regulation of TB (ch. 40 & Concept 42.4)
This first reading assignment reviews 5 major principles re living organisms:
1. Physical laws & the environment constrain the size & shape of organisms.
2. Form & function are correlated at all levels of...
When a condition in the body changes from the norm, this information is sent to a control center. Control centers then instructs effectors, such as glands and muscles, to send a response that reverses the change. This is known as negative feedback and is process by which homeostasis takes place.
The usual concepts of homeostasis (actually the term rheostasis is more correct) are focused upon the mechanisms of circulation, respiration, digestion, excretion, mineral/water balance and bioenergetics. The nervous system and the hormone system are described as regulating, via feedback control, the...

The circulatorysystem contains several very different components, including the heart, a hollow muscular pump that stands at the operational center of the system that pumps liquid blood throughout the body through three types of flexible tubes, the blood vessels (Fig. 4.1)....
(Summarize the general functions of the digestive system)
Well the digestive system begins at your mouth and ends at your anus! Food enters the mouth where it comes in contact with enzymes such as amylase which helps digest starch. It enters your stomach through your esophagus. The epiglottis...

Specialties of Anatomy
Anatomy describes the structures of the body:
What they are made of
Where they are located
Physiology is the study of:
Functions of anatomical structures
Individual and cooperative functions
action takes place.
* Cofactors and coenzymes are small molecules or ions that help enzymes to act.
