1

True or False:

Anatomy is the study of body structures and their relationships.

True

2

True or False:

Physiology is the science of how body parts function.

True

3

Name the 3 major subdivision of anatomy.

  • gross anatomy
  • microscopic anoatomy
  • developmental anatomy

4

Physiology concerns the ________________ of specific organs organ systems.

functioning

5

What 2 principles explain Physiology?

  1. Chemical Principle
  2. Physical Principle

6

The ______________ principle explains the reasoning why anatomy and physiology are inseparable.

  • complementary of structure and function

Anatomy and physiology are inseparable: What a body can do depends on the unique architecture of its parts.

7

Name the levels of structural organization of the body, from simplest to the most complex.

  1. chemical
  2. cellular
  3. tissue
  4. organ
  5. organ system
  6. organism

8

Name the 11 organ systems of the body.

  • integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive.

The immune system is a functional system closely associated with the lymphatic system.

9

Name the 7 vital functional activities necessary of life.

  • maintenance of boundaries
  • movement
  • responsiveness, digestion
  • metabolism
  • excretion
  • reproduction
  • growth

10

Name the 5 survival needs necessary for life.

  • nutrients
  • water
  • oxygen
  • appropriate temperature
  • atmospheric pressue

11

True or False:

Homeostasis is NOT a dynamic equilibrium of the internal environment.

False

  • Homeostasis is a dynamic equilibrium of the internal environment. All body systems contribute ot homeostasis, by the nervous and endocrine systems are most important. Homeostasis is necessary for health.

12

Name the 3 control mechanisms of the body that work together during homeostasis.

  1. receptor(s)
  2. control center
  3. effector(s)

13

__________ __________ _________ reduce the effect of the original stimulus, and are essential for maintaining homeostatic control

  • Negative feedback mechanisms

Body temperature, heart rate, breathing rate and depth, and blood levels of glucose and certain irons are regulated by negative feedback mechanisms.

14

_________ ____________ __________ intensify the initial stimulus, leading to an enhancement of the response during homeostatic control.

  • Positive feedback mechanisums

Positive feedback mechanisms rarely contribute to homeostasis, but blood clotting and labor contraction are regulated by such mechanisms.

15

True or False:

With age, efficiency of negative feedback mechanisms declines. These change underlie certain disease conditions.

True

16

What position is represented by: the body erect, facing forward, feet slightly apart, arms at sides with palms facing forward

  • Anatomical position

17

23
card image

Name the Orientation and directional term.

  • Intermediate

Between a more medial and a more lateral structure - the collarbone is intermediate between the breastbone and the shoulder.

24
card image

Name the Orientation and directional term.

  • Proximal

Closer to the origin of the body part or attachment of a limb to th ebody ttrunk - the elbow is proximal to the wrist.

25

Name the Orientation and directional term.

  • Distal

Farther from the origin of a body part - the knee is distal to the thigh.
