Refers to the end of the bone.
Is the membrane lining the inside of the bone cavity.
Is the membrane lining the outside of the bone surface. (This membrane serves to provide attachments for tendons, blood vessels and osteoblast).
Is the shaft of the bone.
Is the sensory receptors responsible for the sense of taste.
Relates to smell.
Relates to hearing.
Relates to seeing.
Is the skeletal muscle, muscles that can be controlled consciously.
An accessory organ of the digestive system. (an accessory organ is one that complements the main organ of a system).
Is secreted by the neurohypophysis or posterior pituitary gland. (it is not a hormone secreted by the adenohypophysis).
The most common type of tissue that includes bone, cartilage, adipose and hemopoietic tissue. (connective tissue serves to protect, support and bind together other body tissues).
Is a chronic, progressive neuromuscular disease thought to be caused by an autoimmune disorder, characterized by increasing muscle weakness, belpharoptosis and dysphagia. (means great muscle weakness; patient suffer from rapid loss of muscle function ultimately resulting in death).
Neuronal structure that receives and conduct impulses toward the cell body.
Conducts impulses away from the cell body.
Is the junction between dendrites and synapses.
Nodes of Raniver
Is the gaps in the myelin sheath.
Proximal Convoluted Tubule
The structure that extends from the Bowman's Capsule.
Loop of Henle
Is situated between proximal convoluted tubule and collecting tubule.
Is a tuft of capillaries located within the Bowman's Capsule.
