Transcript of Human Body Project

The Human Body Project By: Kaitlyn Gibson, Adriana Perrogi, Steven Ao The Nervous System The Respiratory System The Circulatory System The Skeletal System The Immune System The Nervous System is divided into two parts. The Central Nervous System (CNS) and The Peripheral Nervous System The CNS is made up of the brain and spinal cord The Peripheral Nervous system is made up of all the nerves and wiring Its main job is to get information from the body and send out instructions Its main job is to send messages from the brain to the rest of the body How it works: The brain talks to the rest of the body through nerves and the spinal cord

Welcome To The Nervous System. (n.d.). ThinkQuest : Library. Retrieved from http://library.thinkquest.org/5777/ner1.htm Refrences The Spinal Cord and nerves tell the brain whats going on in the body This system gives instructions to the body about what to do Nerves run all throughout the human body. The spine protects the spinal cord from injury. The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves connecting your body to your brain Medical Problems: There is a wide array of medical problems that can affect the nervous system including
Alzheimer's Disease
Multiple Sclerosis
Stroke Interaction with other systems: The nervous system interacts with every other system in the body Every muscle and organ needs direction and instruction from the nervous system The Respiratory system is made up of many parts including the
mouth & nose
diaphragm Its primary function is to supply oxygen to the blood to be delivered all around the body Common Illnesses: Asthma - constriction of hypersensitive airways;

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) - lung disease causing shortness of breath;

Chronic Bronchitis - inflammation and permanent scarring of the bronchial tubes

Emphysema - damage to air sacs walls causing loss of elasticity;

Lung Cancer - malignant tumors that develop in lung tissue

Acute Bronchitis-inflammation of the bronchial tubes;

Influenza - serious infection cause by the influenza virus;

Pneumonia - infection of the lungs caused by a virus or bacteria;

Common Cold - infection caused by a virus; How does the respiratory System interact with other body systems? The Respiratory system adds oxygen to the blood which is needed for cells to live, so without the respiratory system interacting with the circulatory system we wouldn't be alive. Air goes from the to the and out again to the to the to the References

Retrieved from http://www.teachpe.com/images/respiratory_system.jpg The immune system is the body's defense against infectious organisms and other potentially harmful things The immune system is made up of special cells, proteins, tissues, and organs, defends people against germs and microorganisms The cells used to fight harmful things are called Leukocytes , or white blood cells. They're produced in thymus, spleen, and bone marrow and housed in your lymph nodes The two basic types of leukocytes are:
1.)phagocytes, cells that chew up invading organisms
2.)lymphocytes, cells that allow the body to remember and recognize previous invaders and help the body destroy them How does the Immune system know when to attack? When a foreign substance enters the body, the immune system sends out antigens to recognize and send out cells to fight it with antibodies. The antibodies don't leave a person's body when the antigen does, building up and immunity to that virus To fight the antigen, the antibodies bind with it The immune system interacts with every system in the process of keeping the body healthy and safe Common Medical Problems: References

Autoimmune Diseases-In response to an unknown trigger, the immune system may begin producing antibodies that instead of fighting infections, attack the body's own tissues.
Immune Deficiency Diseases-The immune system may be suppressed by medications or illness
ex.) HIV/AIDS The Skeletal system is made up of bones . Its main functions are to hold the body upright, to protect the inside of the body and it allows us to move. There are 206 bones The skeletal system works with The Muscular System Each individual muscle in the body is connected to one or more parts of the skeletal system. Circulatory System Red and White blood cells are produced inside the bone References

Retrieved from http://kidshealth.org/kid/cancer_center/HTBW/bones.html# Medical problems: The Circulatory System includes the heart and the blood vessels. There are two circulatory loops that blood takes through our bodies.
1.) through the heart and body
2.)through the lungs and heart Its only function is to provide our body with oxygen rich blood. medical
problems interaction with other systems how it works: The heart send oxyen-rich blood off to the body through arteries to be used The body uses the oxygen in the blood and sends it back to the heart through veins The heart send the used blood to the lungs The lungs oxygenate the blood and send it back to the heart This process continuously recycles the blood throughout your life. Heart Attack
High Blood Pressure
Atherosclerosis-A disease of the arteries characterized by the deposition of plaques of fatty material on their inner walls.
Aneurysm-An aneurysm is an abnormal widening or ballooning of a portion of an artery due to weakness in the wall of the blood vessel
Angina-A condition marked by severe pain in the chest, often spreading to the shoulders, arms, and neck, caused by an inadequate blood supply Hormones — produced by the endocrine system — are also transported through the blood in the circulatory system. The Circulatory system works with all the other body systems.
It supplies the body with oxygen and nutrients by working with the respiratory system. References

Osteoperosis:Weak bones due to lack of calcium
Arthritis:Inflammation of the joints
Scoliosis:Irregular curve of the spine
The heart is like an engine
blood is always being pumped
It moved blood around the body
with a thump-thump

The arteries carry blood away from the heart
while veins bring them back
this system can't stop working
there's no time for slack

Without the circulatory system
we surely couldn't live.

The skeletal system lets us move
without our bones
we would be a puddle on the floor
and surely that would be an eye sore

Our organs are trapped inside
the brain heart and lungs
all safe and connected
Through the mouth air flows
Or maybe through the nose
Then it goes to the throat
It makes sure theres no water or oats
Then down to the lungs
Where oxygen is slung
Into the blood Theres to parts to this system
the central
and peripheral
with the brain in control
working correctly is its goal
with all the wiring and nerves
the nervous system deserves
a round of applause

Our body has a strong defense
infectious organisms will agree
the immune system is the best defense
they have ever seen
with white blood cells
out to save the day
whenever they smell
a mean antigen
they kick it out the way!
Go immune system,
YAY! By Adriana Perrigo, Kaitlyn Gibson
