Unformatted text preview: ANATOMY LECTURE 1 ­18 ­12 Grade is based upon your ability to accrue points with a maximum point possibility of 800 points. You can have a single test score replaced with the section of the final. The final is comprised of all of three sections that were previously tested. This means that if you would like to replace a poor score from the second test, taking the final and doing well in the second section will replace your previous score. However, taking the final will count towards your final grade. All grades will possess either a solid grade or ±, this is a directive from UT and not a quirk of the professor. Test questions will be derived from all materials covered in class and lab, and could include material from review questions both in the discussion section and from the book. Lectures may be recorded, just not uploaded to youtube. No quiz for the first laboratory section Friday morning from 9 ­10 am is the discussion section. A role was previously done for the discussion section and used to determine the success of students in the course. It was revealed that the students that attended did well overall in the course compared to those students that did not utilize the discussion section. The point of the discussion section is to review what was previously covered in the week by Dr. Farrar. It is for clarification of materials so that students can digest the concepts and information provided. TISSSUE (Chapter 4) • • • • Know the four types of tissue and general functions and if presented with an anatomical feature, know what tissues compose it. o Epithelial Tissue – external o Endothelial Tissue – internal List structural and functional characteristics of epithelial tissue. Name, classify, and describe the various types of epithelia and their function and location. Four types of tissue: o Connective Tissue – extracellular tissue that covers several areas, ie. Blood, fat, ligaments. o Muscle Tissue – Striations, shortening characteristic due to protein interactions. o Nervous Tissue – Conducts depolarization from once part of cell to next area of the cell Epithelial Tissue – covers all surfaces of the body, avascular tissue(no blood supply, it utilizes a diffusion process to maintain nutrients and removal of CO2. Transitional – these cells are found within the bladder and allow for stretching of the bladder (i.e., allow the bladder is hold more fluid). Types of epithelial cells: (creates a water tight seal for the body to keep external environments external and internal liquids within, also to prevent infections) o Squamous – easily seen in the skin and can flake off, also in blood vessels. It is generally one cell thick. Simple  ­ Stratified – more cuboidal but flatten out the further they move away from the body. Psuedostratified: cilia can be found on end the cell and provide movement in one direction only and a passive recoil back to 0. Allows a person to expel mucus that is dirty or contaminated. o Cuboidal – look like cubes found easily in the kidneys. o Columnar – within the digestive tract of the body. o • ...
