Controlling Heart Rate

Controlling Heart Rate

Extract from notes: "- Medulla oblongata is responsible for controlling heart rate; two centres within it that are linked to the SAN by motor neuronesOne centre increases heart rate: sends impulses through sympathetic nervous system  transmitted by the accelerator nerveOne centre decreases heart rate: sends impulses through parasympathetic nervous system  transmitted by the vagus nerveWhich centre is stimulated depends of info received by receptors in the blood vessels- BARORECEPTORS (pressure receptors) – detect changes in blood pressure; present in the aorta, vena cava and carotid arteriesE.g. blood pressure low  heart rate needs to increase to prevent fainting- CHEMORECEPTORS (chemical receptor) – detect changes in the levels of CO2; located in the aorta, carotid artery and the medulla "

Structure & Function of the Kidney + Nephron [REVISION NOTES]

Structure & Function of the Kidney + Nephron [REVISION NOTES]

Extract from notes: "FUNCTION OF THE NEPHRON ULTRAFILTRATION – process by which blood plasma is filtered through the walls of the Bowman’s capsule under pressure; occurs in the glomerulus and the cells lining the Bowman’s capsule- Urea, along with salt, water and glucose, etc., is extracted from the blood in the kidney- Glomerulus is supplied w/ blood by a wide AFFERENT arteriole (from the renal artery) - Blood leaves through the narrower EFFERENT arteriole; large pressure in the capillaries  forces blood out of the glomerulus capillary walls  fluid passes through the basement membrane (network of collagen fibres & proteins; the second filter)- Plasma contents can pass through the basement membrane, but erythrocytes and large plasma proteins are RETAINED in the capillary"

Hormonal Communication [REVISION NOTES]

Hormonal Communication [REVISION NOTES]

Extract from notes: "Adrenal Cortex – outer region of the glands; Produces hormones vital for life; controlled by hormones from the pituitary gland - Types of hormones produced by the adrenal cortex:- Glucocorticoids: Cortisol – regulate metabolism of carbohydrate and proteins in the liver, blood pressure and cardiovascular function in response to stress; Glucocorticoid – regulate immune response; suppress inflammatory reactions- Mineralocorticoids: Aldosterone (maintains water balance between salt and water concentrations in the blood)- Androgens: Small amounts of male and female sex hormones; important in women after menopause"

Regulation of Blood Glucose [REVISION NOTES]

Regulation of Blood Glucose [REVISION NOTES]

Extract from notes: "Normal blood conc. = 90 mg cm-3INCREASING BLOOD GLUCOSE CONC.- DIET: eating carbohydrate-rich foods (pasta and rice)  they are broken down in the digestive system, releasing glucose  absorbed into the bloodstream  conc. rises- GLYCOGENOLYSIS: glycogen stored in liver + muscle cells broken down into glucose  released into bloodstream - GLUCONEOGENESIS: production of glucose from non – carbohydrate sources; (Liver can make glucose from glycerol and amino acids)  released into the bloodstream DECREASING BLOOD GLUCOSE CONC. - RESPIRATION: glucose in the blood used by cells to release energy; higher the level of physical activity  higher the demand for glucose (for muscles to contract)  greater decreases of blood glucose conc. - GLYCOGENESIS: production of glycogen; excess glucose is converted into glycogen  stored in the liver"
