- Study the effects of adrenaline and ADH after reading this link.
Act: a- Use bullet points to summarise the effects of adrenaline.
b- Describe 3 situations in which adrenaline is secreted. Post a picture to show the examples.
All mammals have a CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM and a PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. The CNS is made up of the brain and the spinal cord. The peripheral nervous system is made up of nerves and receptores.
For this week, we were assigned the following task by our Biology teacher.
Our biology teacher, Male, gave us this assignment for this week’s virtual period.
3. Insulin regulates glucose levels in blood. Whenever we eat carbohydrates, we ingest glucose. If the glucose levels we ingest are very high, it could cause problems if it weren’t for the hormone of insulin, which regulates the amount of glucose and stores the excess glucose as glycogen in the liver. If insulin is not produced because of a problem in the pancreas, that extra amount of glucose which we ingest wouldn’t be regulated and it would lead to an illness, such as diabetes.
Today our biology teacher, Male, told us to answer the followings questions about the respiratory system.
Look for a picture that shows the structure of the respiratory system
Use a flow chart to show the pathway of air along the respiratory tract.
Nasal cavity –> Pharynx –> Trachea –> Bronchi –> Bronchioles –> Alveoli–> Exhange of gases –> Bronchioles –> Bronchi –> Trachea–> Pharynx–> Nasal cavity
Breathing movement: search a video which shows the structures involved in breathing.
