Richland College Biol. 2402 th Edition EXERCISE 40 – ANATOMY OF THE URINARY SYSTEM OBJECTIVES 1. To identify the urinary organs on models and cats. 2. To identify the key areas and structures on kidney and nephron models and pig kidneys. 3. To follow the blood supply into the kidney all the way to a nephron, locating all blood vessels involved with urine formation. 4. To summarize the 3 major steps in urine formation---filtration, reabsorption, secretion—and to identify where these processes occur along the nephron. 5. To identify key tissues and structures in kidney tissue and the urinary bladder. Note figures in exercise, particularly microscopy (and corresponding histology atlas color plates in lab book, as well as histology on the PhysioEx CD). ACTIVITY1: IDENTIFYING URINARY SYSTEM ORGANS Organ models & torso models Retroperitoneal location of the kidneys, their relationship to the peritoneal cavity and peritoneal membranes.

Unformatted text preview: Learn structures in figures in text of lab, except some in 40.2 (OMIT adventitia, ALL orifices, neck, crus and bulb of penis). The bulbourethral gland, prostate gland, erectile tissue will be important in the reproductive system next. DISSECTION of PIG kidney: cortex vs. medulla pelvis calyces papilla pyramids ureter CAT: See dissection exercise #8 in lab book, p. 753. Know these organs/structures on the cat. urinary bladder in both male and female penile urethra in male kidneys ureters ACTIVITY 2: NEPHRON STRUCTURE Models HISTOLOGY : kidney differentiate between medulla and cortex identify glomerulus and Bowmans capsule identify simple squamous epithelium of loops of Henle, if possible identify simple cuboidal epithelium of other tubules ACTIVITY 3: BLADDER STRUCTURE models HISTOLOGY : urinary bladder/transitional epithelium SKIP All disorders NOTE: to those who have the interactive Physiology CD INTERACTIVE PHYSIOLOGY URINARY SYSTEM...
