Sunday, May 22, y Lecture 2 4 Primary Tissue Types: 1. Connective Tissue • Binds, anchors, supports other tissues • Extensive amount of extracellularmatrix (ECM) • Protein fibers outside of cells Collagen strength in tissues Elastingives the tissue the ability to stretch and recoil • Bones, blood, tendons, cartilage, adipose tissue 2. Nervous Tissue • CNS (central nervous system) spinal cord • PNS (peripheral nervous system) outside of the spine • Glial cells (Glia) support other types of cells in the nervous system Neurons • Neurons transmit electrical impulses • Process of electrical impulse through neuron: Cell body (nucleus and organelles) >Dendrites> Axon > Axon terminal > Neurotransmitters • > Synapse the space between another neuron OR • > Muscle cell muscle contraction occurs OR • > Gland secretion of gland 1 Sunday, May 22, y • Neurons usually don’t reproduce 3. Muscle Tissue • Contration • Generation of force • Muscle cells Skeletal muscle fiber • multiple nuclei • striated muscle • moves the bone Smooth controls movement through hollow tubes of organs • one nucleus • not a striated muscle Cardiac found in the heart • one nucleus • striated muscle • short and branched *Note: Powerpoint diagrams may be included on exams* 4. Epithelial Tissue • Line hollow tubes and organs • Barrier • Lumen hollow part of tube • Lumen > blood has to go through epithelial cells 2 Sunday, May 22, y • Exocrine sweat glands Secrete via ducts to external environment • Endocrine hormone glands Secrete directly into the blood Homeostasis • Maintenance of a dynamic, steady state of the internal environment (inside bodies, but outside of cells) ex: glucose levels associated with normal eating patterns ex: pH of blood needs to be between 7.35 and 7.45 • below acidosis • above alkalosis Negative Feedback Systems • A response to a change in a controlled variable in it’s opposition to the change (it goes in the opposite direction) ex: Body temp • lower body temp (controlled variable) > shiver > increased body temp ex: Blood pressure • low blood pressure > mechanisms in the body change > increased blood pressure Chemistry Review • Solution Solvent a mixture of liquid 3 Sunday, May 22, y Solute dissolves in liquid • Matter anything that has mass and occupies space • Mass matter • Weight effect of gravity on mass • The Atom Proton and Neutrons in the nucleus Electrons around the nucleus Humans are primarily made of elements C, H, O, N Humans essential elements K, Na, Mg, Ca • Chemical Bonding Formation of molecules atom + atom Orbitals 2 electrons Shells made of several orbitals Valence shell outer most shell • 1st shell 2 electrons 4 Sunday, May 22, y • 2nd shell 8 electrons • 3rd shell 8 electrons 5
