1

What is the main purpose of negative feedback?

To reverse the effects of the original stimulus and change the homeostatic balance back to it's original or ideal value

Friction ridge patterns that are genetically determined and unique to each individual

27

What is yellow bone marrow and what does it contain?

Bone marrow that contains mostly fat cells and some white blood cells. It is located in the central cavities of long bones in adults

28

What cell is responsible for the secretions of the matrix of bone?

Osteoblasts

29

Where would the break be in the bone if the fracture is in the shaft of the bone?

diaphysis

30

What is ossification of the ends of long bones?

Endochondral ossification

31

In early childhood, what structure allows the diaphysis of the bone to increase in length?

The epiphyseal plates

32

During infancy and childhood what single most important stimulus for epiphyseal plate activity?

Growth hormones

33

The resilience of bone is primarily due to what situation?

Bone remodeling

34

The process of resorption of bones is due to which cell?

osteoclasts

35

What is the name of the structural unit of spongy?

trabeculae

36

Define osteogenesis?

The process of bone formation, also called ossification

37

The largest portion of the coxal bone is formed by which bone?

Coxa – hip, the largest part of the hip bone is the ilium

38

What membranous areas are between the cranial bones and fetal skull called?

fontanelles

39

The axial skeleton consist of what parts of the body?

Head, neck and trunk of the body

40

What function do the intervertebral discs do?

Located between the vertebrae, they act as shock absorbers during walking, jumping, and running. They also allow the spine to flex and extend, and to a lesser extent bend laterally.

41

What is scoliosis?

"twisted disease" an abnormal rotation of the spine that results in a lateral curvature

42

What is lordosis?

"swayback" an accentuated lumbar curvature

43

What is the hyoid bone?

"U-shaped" - lies in the anterior neck just inferior to the mandible, the only bone in the body that does not articulate directly with any other bone, a moveable base for the tongue, attachment points for the neck muscles that raise and lower the larynx during swallowing and speech

44

What does articular cartilage in the long bones do?

Covers the ends of most bones at movable joints

45

What is bursae?

a fluid-filled sac or saclike cavity, especially one countering friction at a joint

46

Bending your head back as far as a person can is called -

hyperextension

47

What is hyaluronic acid?

Flattened fibrous sacs lined with synovial membrane and containing a thin film of synovial fluid

48

What is menisci?

Articular discs – discs or wedges if fibrocartilage separating the articular surfaces, they partially or completely divide the synovial cavity into two

49

Moving a limb away from the median plane of the body is known as?
