Hormones:the first step

<<Prev <<Top>> Next>>

The autonomous functions are slowly controtlled by hormones.

Endocrine system and autonomous system
Autonomous function is the regulation of organism's development, maturation, inner conditions involuntarily. Autonomous functions are regulated by endocrine system ahe command transmission and the temporal rate of change in command level, namely the hormone concentration, are small.
Route The speed of the command transmission Temporal rate of change in command level Regulating system
Autonomous nervous system Peripheral nerves large large intestinal movement, blood pressure, heart rate, etc.
Endocrine system Circulatory system small small Growth, sexual maturity, etc.
Achievement Quiz
1. Compared to the activity of autonomous nervous system, the temporal rate of change in hormonal secretion is [ a. small / b. large ].

2. Compared to the hormonal secretion, the temporal rate of change in activity of autonomous nervous system is [ a. small / b. large ].

3. When quick controls in the matter of seconds, as for changes in blood pressure and heartbeats with changes in posture, are needed, it will be done mainly by [ a. autonomous nervous system / b. endocrine system ].

4. When slow controls in the matter of months, as for development or maturation, is needed, it will be done mainly by [ a. autonomous nervous system / b. endocrine system ].

5. The main effects of hormones are the control of growth, autonomous functions, and homeostasis maintainance. [ a. right / b. wrong ]
Answer
1. The correct answer is a. The speed of the comand transmission and the temporal rate of change in command level in autonomous nervous system occur in the matter of miliseconds, but with hormones, it takes minutes to hours.

2. The correct answer is b. The speed of the comand transmission and the temporal rate of change in command level in autonomous nervous system occur in the matter of miliseconds, but with hormones, it takes minutes to hours.

3. The correct answer is a. Which system has larger temporal rate of change?

4. The correct answer is b. Which system has smaller rate of change?

5. The correct answer is a. I don't find any good reason to say 'false'...
