You get to discover the major systems that allow the human body to function properly, and learn the important roles that each of these systems play. Some diseases and limitations of the human body are also discussed.
After completing this tutorial, you will be able to complete the following:
How do bone tissue and muscle tissue differ?
~ Bone tissue is comprised of bone cells, and muscle tissue is comprised of muscle cells. Both tissues are configured differently and have different roles.
When many organs function together, what do they create?
~ Many organs functioning together create an organ system.
What are the systems in the human body?
~ The nervous system, excretory system, digestive system, respiratory system, circulatory system, and skeletal system are the systems in the human body.
How are the structures in the body organized to form a whole organism?
~ Cells specialize and form tissues to create anatomical structures that perform specific tasks. These tissues have different configurations and roles, and form larger structures that we call organs. Organs are linked to create organ systems that work together. Whole systems work together to perform the vital functions of an organism.
