Flashcards in Physiology Intro Deck (14):
1

(molecules/cells/organs) act as as sources of eneryg , serve in recognition, build larger structures that are building blocks of the cell

molecules

2

(molecules/cells/organs) are the smalles unit capable of carring out life , separate an internal environement , maintain it different from external thrugh barrier actions of the plasma membrane

cells

3

T/F cells can be specialized for specific jobs/roles

cells

4

(cells/tissue/organs/organ systems) are groups of cells that work to carry out a related function

tissues

5

(cells/tissue/organs/organ systems) are structural and functional units formed by different types of tissues that work together to do a specific job

organs

6

(cells/tissue/organs/organ systems) are compromized of groups of organs whos funcitons intergrate to allwo the organism to funciton in and interact with its environment in an appropriate fashion

organ systems

7

physiology part of biology dealing with (function/deterioration) and activities of organisms


-it also is how organisms (sense/adjust/control/compose) changes in their environment --pick two

function

sense and adjust

8

(Homeostasis/cell-cell communication) refers to the physiological processes that help maintain/regulate the internal environment of the body.

homeostasis

9

would you rather a person maintain homeostasis or equilibrium as a future health care provider? and why

rather a person maintain homeostasis because equilibrium nothing is changing

10

T/F knowing how something is put together often yield iimportant cluses to how the system functions

T

11

homeostasis the ability to maintain the interna evironment within (broad/narrow) limits

narrow

12

(nervous/autorine/paracrine) systems are for local communication between neighboring cells , signlas diffuse from signlaing cell to target cell

autorine paracrine

13

(nervous/endocrine) system gnerally allow signlas to be carried over relatively long distances, but at different rates (neural signaling is faster)

endocrine

14

T/F endocrine and neural systems are opposite ends of continous spectra for example hormones are secreted from nerves and are considered neurohormones

T
