Transcript of Cell Analogy Project ; Human Body

By: Victor Jorges
Pd. 7 Cell Analogy Project The human brain controls all the actions that take place in your body. In a cell, the nucleus also controls everything that happens in the cell. Vital information is stored in both of these sections of the body and cell. Nucleus = Brain The skin is the barrier between the human body and outside world. Likewise, the cell wall serves as a division between the cell and the rest of the body. Cell Wall = Epidermis The dermis is another layer in our skin. It also provides more protection to our bodies. In the cell, the membrane is another layer of protection as well. It is between the cell and the the cell wall. And the dermis is between the body and the epidermis. Cell Membrane = Dermis The blood in the human body is similar to the cytoplasm in the cell. Both are liquid substances that surround everything. Cytoplasm = Blood The human heart is what keeps your body going. Without your heart you wouldn't be able to survive.If a cell doesn't have energy, it can't perform all the functions that are vital for homeostasis. The cranium acts like a shield to the brain. Just like the nuclear membrane protects the nucleus. Nuclear Envelope = Cranium The lysosomes in the cell is the organelle that digests food, and gets rid of waste. In the human body, the part that performs this activity is the stomach. Lysosomes = Stomach Mitochondria = Heart The human body has its shape thanks to bones and the skeleton. The same happens with cells, they need a structure, and the cytoskeleton is what provides such support to the cell. Cytoskeleton = Bones In the cell, the flagella assists the cell by moving the cell around. Without feet, humans wouldn't be able to move either. Flagella = Feet In the cells, the nucleolus is a section of the nuclous where information is stored. In humans, the equivalent body part are the neurons, found in the brain. Nucleolus = Neurons Just the like the liver, ribosomes synthesize proteins. Ribosomes = Liver Pretty much everything in the human body moves through veins. This is the same in cells. The ER transports and moves nutrients throughout the cell. Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) = Veins When the cell is "hungry", the vacuole is where all the energy, food and wastes are stored. When we don't eat, the body has nowhere else to get food than from our body fat. Body fat and the vacuole are very similar. Vacuole = Body Fat
