Transcript of Mountain Lion Final

A Mountain Lion Encounter By: Logan Murphy, Pablo Gonzalaz, Isaac The Prey The Most Affected Body Part The Normal Body vs. The Scared Body How The Other Body Part Work When deer become in fear, from a predator or any sudden moment, they run as fast as they can. Baby fawn rarely leave their mother, because of fear of attack by larger predators. But if they do often when faced with danger many try to hid from being seen, and or slowly crawl away to leave danger. This big horned sheep, with their big horns on the top of their head are able to fight against these vicious animals. Often able to win because they are hued to crashing into other animals. The heart is the most affected body part in the body when it is under a fearful situation. The heart speeds up and pumps more blood as a reaction from adrenaline that is sent from the pituitary gland and causes instinctive actions. Under normal circumstances, the human heart operates at about 72 beats per minute. The heart pumps blood through arteries and veins. Blood is filled with oxygen through the respiratory system.

The nervous system is another human body system that is affected by this scenario. The nervous system is triggered by the brain which then sends electrical impulses down your spine and into the nerves. It is the one responsible for actions that you may not be aware of. For example, if your body temperature was low, it would regulate your body’s blood and increase your temperature. When under pressure, the nervous system produces your fight or flight instincts and raises your awareness, similar to adrenaline.

The respiratory is also a human body system that is affected by suspenseful events. Depending on the situation, breathing will increase or decrease, due to temperature and thrill. In suspense, breathing will be short and quick, due to adrenaline. In cold temperature, breathing decreases to stabilize oxygen intake.
When the human body is faced with fear there are many other body parts in which help your body stay stable and one of those is the release of adrenalin. Adrenalin is released from the adrenal glands above your kidneys. These glands override the normal control of blood sugar by injecting an incline of hormones. This hormone promotes the break down of glycogen stores to glucose. This means levels of glucose in the blood is higher than normal and gives the body lots of energy to use for a 'flight or fight' situation. But although your body does try to over come these feelings, there are a few signs in which indicate your body is no longer maintaining stability and is in danger. Inhaling and exhaling oxygen either to fast, and or not enough can cause your body to stop the flow of blood to your brain and or heart causing you to faint. The loose of feeling to your fingers or hands can show some affects of your blood flow slowing down, meaning less and less blood is being circulated through your body. Under a circumstance that causes panic or fear, the heart speeds up its beating and pumping of blood. This is caused from the pituitary gland in the brain. When scared, or excited, the pituitary gland sends out hormones called adrenaline. Adrenaline causes hyperactivity, such as faster breathing, quicker thinking, and faster blood pumping. Us as humans characteristically would have the first instinct to turn and run. As humans we would try to stand as still as possible and if possible slowly get away from the predator without being recognized. without being noticed. For us humans if in a situation where a mountain lion if coming after us with intentions to kill we are supposed to try and fight back. Which we are always ready and trained for. Thank you!
