Integumentary Skeletal System Term Paper

… ¶ … Nervous Systems

The central nervous system is composed of the spinal cord and the brain. Along with these specific structures, the central nervous system also encompasses the neural tissue, blood vessels, and the connective tissue that surround these structures for protection (Martini, Nath, & Bartholomew, 375). It is the job of the central nervous system to integrate, process, and coordinate sensory data into motor commands. The central nervous system receives the information that the body needs in order to execute a motor movement, and then signals are sent out commanding the body to perform these specific movements (Martini, Nath, & Bartholomew, 375). The sensory data received can be in relation to conditions on the outside or the inside of the body. The control…. [read more]

Anatomy and Physiology Organ Systems Are "Composed Essay

… Anatomy and Physiology

Organ systems are "composed of two or more different organs that work together to provide a common function," (Carpi 1999). Among the most important organ systems in the body are the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, senses and endocrine systems. None of these systems are any more important than any other, as all are crucial for the harmonious functioning of the human body.

The integumentary organ system consists of the skin and its related parts including follicles and hair as well as the sebaceous glands. The skin is the largest organ of the body, and comprises up to 15% of total body weight. Underlying tissues including fat can be considered part of the integumentary system.

Both the skeletal and muscular system enable bodily…. [read more]

Physiology Body Systems Essay

… This is as true for the gross motor movements like reaching, to the fine motor movements like picking out one chip from the bag and placing it into my mouth. My jaw muscles are likewise engaged fully in every bite I take. Those jaw muscles are attached to the mandible, which moves up and down as I chew.

In reading the label of the bag, my neurological system was engaged. I was making decisions based on memories of what I like and what I do not like. All the sense perceptions of the body were engaged in this activity. My tongue is the major sensory organ involved in the process of eating, and the different parts of the tongue detect different flavors such as sweet…. [read more]

Biology an Inconvenient Truth Term Paper

… a) Human males reproductive organs are comprised of the penis and testicles. The latter sends sperm through the penis and into the female. The female reproductive system is comprised of the ovaries, uterus, and vagina. Eggs are released through the fallopian tubes into the uterus where they may be fertilized by the sperm from the male.

b) Males produce sperm in the testicles only after they reach puberty. Women release eggs from the ovaries into the uterus once a month. If the egg is fertilized then it will grow into a baby. If not, the egg will drop off and be removed from the system via menstruation.

c) The sperm must pass from the testicles. It begins in the seminiferous tubules, goes into the epididymus,…. [read more]

Marfan's Syndrome Term Paper

… Marfan syndromme is a multisystem disease with variable genotypic and phenotypic appearance. There is overlap in clinical presentation with other multisystem diseases that often may lead to misdiagnosis. Consequently because of its diverse clinical features diagnosis is challenging and necessitates a multidisplinary approach. Genetic counselling is costly, involves a lot of time consumption and does not offer a solution for the diagnostics predication. Therefore failure to make a diagnosis has social as well as medical repercussions for the individual as well as his family.

Marfan syndrome is a genetic disorder of connective tissue that is inherited as an autosomal dominant disease. The spectrum of this multisystem disease mainly but not exclusively affects the musculoskeletal, the ocular and the cardiovascular systems.

The disease is a fibrinllinopathy…. [read more]

Care Plan for Patient Term Paper

Evolution of the Feather Term Paper

… The supposed feathered dinosaurs the Protarchaeopteryx and the Caudipteryx are actually flightless birds.

In the Washington Post, an article was published by John Schwartz in which was stated though most paelontoligist feel that the fierce Tynasourus Rex looks like a chicken, because of the anatomical similarities seen between this ancient reptile and the modern bird. But researchers have come to realize that the fossils of some particular creatures found in China resemble the ancestors of the modern bird. These help us to give us critical clues about the structure, function and evolution of the modern birds and their intricate appendages.Several reports of feathers and feather-like structures in various theropod dinosaurs from the Yixian Formation of Liaoning province in northeastern China have been found in recent….
