Cells and Tissues – An Overview Honors Anatomy & Physiology Chapter 3 Hand in when done please! I. The Cell 4 elements that make up the bulk of the body are: Cell – What does the term “generalized” mean? What actually determines a cell’s structure? Organelle (we will discuss these in later detail next class) – Plasma Membrane – Discuss the physiological functions that occur within all cells. II. Tissues The human body starts out as __________________________________. What happens next (you should remember this from Biology)? Specialization – Tissue – 4 Main Types of Tissue (with a special descriptive term for each and a chief location) III. Developmental Aspects of Cells & Tissues When do most cells stop undergoing mitosis? ________________________________ What are the exceptions? Besides tissue changes associated with age, what are some changes in cells/tissues that can occur at any time? Describe them briefly. (page 90) IV. Cancer = The Intimate Enemy (pages 88 – 89) Summarize what cancer is, how it can start, how to prevent it, etc.
