Lectures will introduce the general area to be studied, and supplementary reading may be undertaken to deepen the students knowledge of different topics. It is hoped that you will gain an awareness of and an appreciation for the marvellous organization of the human body.

A make-up test will be required if a student, because of illness or other serious reason, (documentation must be provided) misses a Term Test. The make-up test must be written before the tests are returned to the class, usually within 3-5 days. There will be no make-ups for missed in-class quizzes. Should a student miss an in-class quiz because of illness or other serious reason, for which documentation has been provided, the subsequent term test will be weighted differently. The reason for the absence must be submitted within one week of the missed class. 2. Students requesting special consideration as a result…
With this assignment I am going to talk about what we know of neurons within our nervous system and how they contribute to help us understand human behaviour. The first part of this assignment will describe how neurons in the central nervous system communicate with other neurons. In the second and final part I would like to discuss how neurons have helped us to understand human behaviour. I will do this with the help of examples from the textbook.
I would like to start with describing the biological…
CBIO Notes Test 5
endocrine system- communicates by means of chemical messengers (hormones) secreted in the blood
nervous system- employs electrical and chemical means to send messages quickly from cell to cell
3 Basic Nervous System steps
1. through sense organs and simple sensory nerve endings, it receives info about changes in the body and the external environment and transmits coded messages to the CNS
2. the CNS processes this info, relates it to past experience and…
Epithelial tissue covers the whole surface of the body. It is made up of cells closely packed and ranged in one or more layers. This tissue is specialised to form the covering or lining of all internal and external body surfaces. Epithelial tissue that occurs on surfaces on the interior of the body is known as endothelium. Epithelial cells are packed tightly together, with almost no intercellular spaces and only a small amount of intercellular substance. Epithelial tissue…
the wall of the eyeball. It also helps maintain the shape of the eyball.
Cornea- a transparent, nonvascular fibrous coat found at the anterior part of the eye and continues toward the posterior at the sclera.
Sclera- a tough fibrous connective tissue covering on the outer surface which gives shape to the eyeball and protects it.
Pupil- a rounded opening through which light passes.
Iris- pigmented part of the eye. A circular-donut shaped band of smooth muscle which controls the amount of light…
Skeletal system and Homeostasis
The skeletal system approximately exist 206 bones that’s permit do movements in the bones comes the un table rigid that supports the muscles and the blanks lungs the bones form many roles cavities that protect organs and interns of possible trauma
1) Bones protect vital organs (form cavities)?
The human skeleton consist of…
Moving, breathing, the ability to physically feel; one may wonder how. How are all these things, these simplified actions, possible? The answer that is giving is simplistic in nature and yet is so complex in actuality. The simplistic answer is the Nervous system. The Nervous system, however, is never simple: the organs, the location (while it may be simple in theory the things that could happen because of it are not), the amount of time dedicated to learning to help people with…
The Lymphoid System and Immunity
Dr. Jim Aston
Bacteria, viruses, parasites, allergens, foreign chemicals, and even cancer cells are
agents called pathogens that can cause disease. The body has cells capable of defending itself
in a nonspecific and very specific way if called upon to do so. The location, housing,
development, and circulation pathways for these cells are found in organs and vessels that
comprise the lymphoid system.

SOME POINEERS OF THE
Introduction to Human Skeletal System:
Skeletal system is the system of bones, associated cartilages and joints of human body. Together these structures form the human skeleton. Skeleton can be defined as the hard framework of human body around which the entire body is built. Almost all the hard parts of human body are components of human skeletal system. Joints are very important because they make the hard and rigid skeleton allow different types of movements at different locations. If the skeleton…
