What is A Body System?

A Body System is a biological system that carry out specific functions necessary for everyday living.

Nervous System

1) Sensory: Detects different things happening internal and external through receptors

2) Integration: After sensory information, brain interprets whats going on

3) Motor: Responds to information that is processed through the simulation of effectors, basically reflexes

Skeletal System

1) Support: The skeletal system gives support and shape for the body and muscles

2) Protection: It provides protection for vital organs (such as brain, ribs, etc.)

3) Movement: With the help of joint and muscles, the skeletal system helps you move. The muscle is attached to your bones

4) Storage: Bones store mineral such as calcium phosphorus

5) Hemopoiesis: Makes blood. Red and white blood cells are formed by a tissue called bone marrow.

Integumentary System

1) Helps maintain homeostasis

2) Removes substances from the body

3) Helps with temperature regulation

4) Protects from other outside substances
