Human Anatomy and Physiology

Parent Category: Biology
Human physiology is the study of the human body relevant to the functions of the organs and systems. It provides a biological baseline for the five senses including the different systems, so that the body can operate normally.
The heart circulates both oxygenated and deoxygenated blood butalong different paths - the human heart has 4 chambers which enableit to do this.
Thank you for your question. My answer is "No." However, an injury to the cervical spinal nerves or those evenlower, like an injury to the axillary (armpit) nerves or those inthe elbow region can cause the symptoms of a pinched nerve withpain in the wrist. Pain would be located at the nerve injury...
Abdominal pain and loss of appetite are very unspecific symptoms.They can stem from pretty much any disorder in thegastroinstestinal tract, and even from disorders elsewhere in thebody. A common gastrointestinal infection by rota- or noroviruses("stomach flu") for example can feel bad but might cure...
No, the condition is caused by deficiency of the parathyroid gland.

The part of the grain that remains after being refined is theendosperm.
The function of cartilage in the bronchus is to hold the softtissue open so that air may pass through. The cartilage in thebronchus are C-shaped rings.
When completely digested they become amino acids.
The skeletal system has a few important jobs. One is to keep usfrom becoming blobs of human tissue similar to jellyfish butwithout the water. The other is to protect vital organs such as ourbrains, heart, lungs, liver. But they have another role which is tocreate a form on which everything else can...
From the mother, that is why they may need to eat more protein, tohelp the baby grow. :)
RH factor in blood types stands for "Rhesus Factor". Blood testswere performed on Rhesus monkeys and the Rh+ and Rh- factors wereisolated. An antigen found in the red blood cells of most people:those who have Rh factor are said to be Rh positive (Rh+), whilethose who do not are Rh negative (Rh-)....
extensor digitorum, extensor indicis, extensor digiti minimi,flexor digitorum superficialis, and the flexor digitorum profundus.There are also extrinsic muscles that work only in the thumb; theseinclude the flexor pollicis longus, extensor pollicis longus,extensor pollicis brevis, and adbuctor...
You have to go to a surgeon
There is 1 skull in the body last time I checked.
It is here that messages from the eyes are interpreted.
Cranial nerves that have a motor function tend to be bilaterally innervated . In other words, the rightaccessory nerve (XI) receives input from both the right and theleft motor cortex. The same goes for the left accessory nerve. This is a handy advantage in strokes, since upper motor neuronelesions...
This could be down to a lack of fruit consumption. This happened toa cousin of mine and the doctor said more fruit and veg should beeaten. If you're really worried go to the doctor. Hope this helped!
Yes! Lets take an example, we are exercising and our breathingsystem is working, other systems will also work like muscularsystem will work, it will help the body to move around. Nervoussystem also function, it'll help you to run by giving sensoryimpulses to foot, and to heart to pump blood. So...
Clostridium tetani , the bacterial pathogen that causes tetanus (lock jaw) is arguably armed but is definitely dangerous. The toxin excreted by this bacterium causes serious illness and death in humans, but it is arguable whether that toxin can be considered an intentional weapon, since it serves...
You can think of blood as a combination of (salt) water. proteins,and red blood cells.. The water carries everything that's water soluble. The proteins carry the fat soluble stuff. And the RBC's carry oxygen.
A sharp tap just below the knee.
There are one directional valves in the veins and in the heart.
This is actually 3.0 musculoskeletal and 76 gr of musculoskeletal
Vicodin has the potential to alter the brain's neurotransmitters.
There is no system as the names grew up gradually.
they increase in size as we get older, so we can never tell.

The Skeletal muscle vend arms and legs. It also closes a fist.
Drugs can act as agonist or antagonist to regulate a process orfunction of cellular/chemical process.
The part of the hip bone that forms the hip joint is actually formed from two of the three fused paired bones - the ischium and the ilium, which are shaped into the acetabulum. The distal articulating bone is the femur, specifically the head of the femur. Femur & coxarum form the hip joint. The hip...
bright red blood will enter the bottle under pressure

The blood is able to move to and from the heart through thecontraction of the heart muscle. These contractions build uppressure and cause you to have what is commonly known as bloodpressure. That build up of pressure pushes the blood throughoutthe arteries and veins and enables it to circulate...
Fibrous connective tissues are found in cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. Cartilage prevents adjacent bone ends from grinding together during movement, tendons attach skeletal muscles to the bones and hold the bones in close proximity, and ligaments are similar to tendons but have the elasticity...
Oxygenated blood is the blood remaining after the oxygen intake bythe body from the blood. And than oxygenated blood goes to Lungsand heart with enrich with oxygen for the body.
Muscles contract when they receive nerve signals from the brain,telling them to put filaments in action. The thin ones slide pastthe thick, shortening the sarcomere (this is a special part of themuscle).
Your blood is never truly dexoygenated, but as it delivers oxygen to tissues the saturation of oxygen gets lower. When the blood reaches the alveoli of the lung oxygen diffuse from the higher concentration of the air to the lower concentration of the blood, where most of it binds to hemoglobin...
Veins that draw blood from the brain are called dural venous sinuses. They receive oxygen-poor blood from the brain and pass it on to either the sigmoid sinus or the inferior petrosal sinus, which then pass the blood to the internal jugular vein, in the neck.
The pancreas is a glandular organ with two main functions. It functions as an exocrine organ by producing digestive enzymes, and as an endocrine organ by producing hormones. The pancreas secretes digestive enzymes such as proteolytic enzymes which are responsible for the digestion of proteins,...
No. Even if she has her ovaries left there's no place for the egg to get attached to and the sperm can't get to them since the uterus is gone.
The skin is the largest organ in the human body. The largest organ of the human body is the skin, because it stretches throughout ll the body parts. Although it feels lightweight, if you were to measure the weight of your skin alone, it could be several pounds. The skin of an average adult weghts...
If the disc is properly positioned then no the peripheral nerveswill not be inhibited in any way. However if the disc is improperlypositioned then it will put pressure on the nerves causing them tobecome impaired.
the organ that absorbs nutrients during digestion is the smallintestine. the walls of the small intestines will absorb digestednutrients into the blood stream
Less then 20 % 0f the men of the world are circumcised and most of them for religious and cultural reasons. some because dad wants the boy to look like himself and some for supposed health reasons although no medical organisations recommend or can see any reason for the procedure unless under very...
Maintain a constant body temperature! Your body does this with sweating is it is hot for example.
The autonomic nervous system ( ANS )is a division of the peripheral nervous system that influences the function of internal organs . [1] The autonomic nervous system is a control system that acts largelyunconsciously and regulates bodily functions such as the heart rate , digestion , ...
The hydrolytic process breaks down inter-amino acid bonds of the protein, so that first polypeptides, then oligopeptides, and finally the constituent amino acids result. By hydrolysis a water molecule will be split into a hydrogen atom and an -OH group and these two units take the bindings that...
difference between an antibody and an antigen
No immunoglobulins (Igs) provide that! That is because Igs or antibodies are in blood tissue and circulated all over blood and immune system. The mucous membrane and skin are actually functioning as a physical barrier preventing invading microbes.
Arms and legs are known as appendages.
Bile is often green because of the presence of biliverdin, which isa breakdown product of haemoglobin.

Metabolism Growth hormones Hormonal balance
The kidneys secrete a variety of hormones , including erythropoietin , and the enzyme renin . Erythropoietin is released in response to hypoxia (low levels of oxygen at tissue level) in the renalcirculation. It stimulates erythropoiesis (production of red blood cells) in the bone marrow . ...
Yes at any moment! Don't force too hard when pooping. Also, if you have been cut by a samurai. So beware of samurai's and get an enema.
Pulmonary Fibrosis is the formation of fibrous tissue in the lung. It was described by the doctor as the lung turning to leather. It can also be described as scarring of the lung. We were told that there is no known cause.
Memory T and B cells ( T-lymphocytes and B-lymphocytes ) rememberthe previous antigens and a second invasion from that pathogen andtriggers a secondary response.
No, well not much at least. The shape is very similar, but sometimes the eye socket shape changes depending on the breed. Some are more prominent then others.
The internal tendon bulk is thought to contain no nerve fibres, butthe epitenon and paratenon contain nerve endings, while Golgi tendon organs are present at the junction between tendon and muscle.
At the bottom of the rib-cage along the midline of the body, youwill feel the ribs from the right and left sides of the body cometogether at a triangular corner. Just below this sits thecartilaginous Xiphoid Process.
