Human body systems
By: Stacy Benjamin
- It helps maintain homeostasis( temperature regulation and keeps body stable according to the surrounding)
- It creates sweat( it creates sweat, when your hot, probably because your body needs to cool down.
- It releases unwanted substances like sweat and oils.
- It also helps in protecting our insides( ex: the skin protects our bones)
- Certain layers in the skin have specific jobs(ex: The Fat layer insulates heat in the body).
The general idea of what the nervous system performs is...
- Sensory: when the nervous system monitors what happens outside and inside of you, using receptors.
- Integration: interprets messages sent to your brain
- Motor: responds to information that is being sent to you brain
The nervous system is later broken down into 2 different parts...
1. Central nervous system
2. Peripheral nervous system
- Central nervous system...
-The central nervous system interprets the messages sent to your brain
-It also sends directions, how to react, to certain actions you perform
-It also consists of the involuntary(breathing) and voluntary(you can control the actions that you perform).
- Peripheral nervous system...
- Somatic nervous system- it carries messages to the central nervous system
- Autonomic nervous system- it carries the messages away from the central nervous system
- Supports: it helps shape the body and also give the body support.
- Protects: the skeleton protects our vital organs(ex: heart, lungs, brain).
- Movement: the joints and muscles help the us to move around. The skeletal system works with the muscular system.
- Hemopoiesis: this is the production of red and white blood cells that takes place in the bone marrow
- Storage: calcium and phosphorus is stored or located in here. These material helps our bones to grow stronger.
