Sample Text:
eg maintaining temperature and ph levels Communications in the Body Nervous System: - Electrochemical impulses, transported via neurons - Regulates the activity of muscles and glands Endocrine System: - Mostly concerned with keeping the internal environment of the body constant (homeostasis) - Chemical hormones, transported through the bloodstream Paracrine signalling - Cell secretes paracrine into the surrounding cellular fluid will then interact with the cells within the tissue - Only travel in the extracellular fluid around the a certain group of cells Autocrine - Cell interacts with itself Glands: - Secretes things eg fluid, hormones 2 types: Exocrine glands - Secretes into ducts - These ducts carry secretions to body surfaces or cavities - eg sweat glands Endocrine glands: - Ductless - Secrete into extracellular fluids - Secretions usually enter bloodstream for ...

Role of the brain in mental processes and behaviour • the influence of different approaches over time to understanding the role of the brain, including the brain vs heart debate, mind-body problem, phrenology, first brain experiments and neuroimaging techniques • the basic structure and function of the central and peripheral nervous systems as communication systems between the body’s internal cells and organs and the external world • the role of the neuron (dendrites, axon, myelin and axon terminals) as the primary functional unit of the nervous system, including the role of glial cells in supporting neuronal function • the basic structure and function of the hindbrain (cerebellum, medulla), midbrain (reticular formation) and forebrain (hypothalamus, thalamus, cerebrum) • the role of the cerebral cortex in the processing of complex sensory information, the initiation of voluntary movements, language, symbolic thinking and the regulation of emotion, including localisation of function. Brain plasticity and brain damage • infancy and adolescence as periods of rapid development and changes in brain structure and function, including development of myelin, synaptic pruning and frontal lobe development • the impact of injury to the cerebral cortex on a person’s biological, psychological and social functioning and the ability of the brain to undergo adaptive plasticity, illustrated by rehabilitation of people with brain injuries • the use of animal studies and neuroimaging techniques to develop understanding of human neurological disorders including Parkinson’s disease.
