First Exam Study Questions: 1. What is the major organizational plan of the body? And what are the four primary tissues? Organizational plan of the body a) Chemical level – various atoms and molecules make up the body b) Cellular level – cells are the basic unit of life c) Tissue level – tissues are groups of cells of similar specialization (see below) d) Organ level – organ is unit made of several tissues e) Body system level – body system is collection of related organs f) Organism level – body systems are packaged together into a functional whole body g) muscle – movements; cells specialized for contracting, generating tension, and producing movement Four Primary Tissues a) muscle – movements; cells specialized for contracting, generating tension, and producing movement b) nervous – communication, coordination control; cells are specialized for initiating and transmitting electrical impulses c) epithelial – protection, secretion (glands), & absorption; cells specialized for exchanging materials between cells and environment d) connective – blood (plasma); has relatively few cells dispersed in abundance of extracellular matrix 2. Deliniate between the 3 types of muscle (skeletal, cardiac, and smooth)? a) skeletal – voluntary, moves the skeleton ex. joints, etc. b) cardiac – involuntary, pumps blood out of heart 3.

Trigger Zone Axon Hillock (Integration occurs here, initiates axon potential) Conducting Zone Axon (conducts AP in undiminishing fashion, often over long distances) Output Zone Axon Terminals (where Ca2+ channels open and NTs released) 4. Anatomical classifications of epithelial tissue and 2 primary functions? Anatomical classifications a) epithelial sheets – layers of tightly joined cells that cover and line parts of the body serving as a b) secretory glands – epitheial tissue derivatives specialized for secreting a. exocrine glands – secrete through ducts to outside of body or cavity (ex. Sweat glands & glands secreting digestive juices) b. endocrine glands – lack ducts and release hormones internally to the blood (ex. Pancreas secretes insulin in blood) 5. Four types of connective tissue? 1) loose connective tissue – attaches epithelial tissue to underlying structures 2) tendons – attach skeletal muscle to bone 3) bone – gives body shape, support and protection 4) blood – transports materials 6. Distinguish between ICF, ECF, plasma, and interstitial fluid?
