waste products.

C. Formed elements or cells in Vascular tissue.  Erythrocytes or Red Blood Cells(RBC)

Human‟s RBC- disc-shaped, smaller and without a nucleus >>MALE- 5, 500, 000 per cubic mm of blood. >>FEMALE- 5, 000, 000 per cubic mm of blood. -origin- red bone marrow of long bones.  Leucocytes or White Blood Cells(WBC) -the soldiers of the body^fight infections. -origin^lymph glands and some from the bone marrow  TYPES OF LEUCOCYTES A. Granulocytes(polyphonuclear leococytes)- with granules in the cytoplasm; nucleus in varies shape.  NEUTROPHIL- nucleus consists of three(3) or more lobes. - granules in the cytoplasm are fine and numerous. - not stained by acidic and basic dye. - 60%-70% of the total number of WBC  EOSINOPHIL- nucleus consist of two(2) lobes. - granules in the cytoplasm are fewer but coarser. - stained by asidic dye. - 3-4% of the total number of WBC.  BASOPHIL- one-lobed nucleus that is usually twisted like an “S”. - granules in the cytoplasm are very large but few. - stained by basic dye. - 0.5% of the total number of WBC.

B. Agranulocytes(mononuclear leucocytes)- with no granules in the cytoplasm.  LYMPHOCYTES- smaller spherical cell with the nucleus almost occupying the entire cell;  
cytoplasm is very small in amount. - 20-25% of the total number of WBC. MONOCYTES- bigger spherical cell; nucleus is bean-shaped( with indentation) - 2-6% of the total number of WBC,

A. Functions of Nervous Tissue  To receive and transmit impulses. B. Parts of Neuron  Neuron or Nerve cell- the structural and functional unit of nervous tissue.
a. Cell body or cytosomal body- large, with a conspicuous nucleus and two or more thin protoplasmic processes or cytoplasmic extensions that grow out of the cell body to form fibers, the dendrites and axon. b. Dendrites- the shorter, much branched(tree-liked) protoplasmic process that transmits impulses towards the cell body. c. Axon- the short or long unbranched protoplasmic process that transmits impulses away from the cell body.

C. Types of Neurons according to structure  Unipolar neuron- with one cell body and one axon. Ex: found in the earthworm.  Bipolar neuron- with one cell body, one axon, and one dendrites. Ex: found in the nose.  Multipolar neuron- with one cell body, one axon, and several dendrites. Ex: roots in the spinal

D. Types of Neurons according to functions  Sensory neurons- pick up impulses from sensory receptors(skin or sense organ) and transmit them to

nerve centers(brain and spinal chord).  Motor neurons- carry impulses from the nerve centers to effectors like muscles or glands.  Association neurons- form various connections between other neurons(between sensory and motor neurons. Synapse- the point of contact between neurons. Ganglion- a group of nerve cell bodies(with conspicuous nuclei)outside the central nervous system. Nerve fibers- elongated outgrowths or a dendrite. As the nerve fibers extend away from the cell body, they become surrounded with sheaths.

E. Types of Nerve fibers (AXON)  Myelinated or medullated nerve fiber(white fiber)- the axon is surrounded by a sheath of myelin, a
semi-fluid fatty material that appear white. Ex: peripheral and sympathetic nervous system.  Non-myelinated or non-myelinated nerve fiber- the axon is with out any surrounding sheath of myelin; gray in appearance. Ex: brain and spinal chord ( central nervous system).

F. Parts of a medullated nerve fiber.  Axis cylinder- the central core and is the cell process.  Myelin sheath- the semi-fluid fatty materials which makes the fiber appear white, functions for the
conduction of nerve impulses.

parts of the brain w/ one another  Connects the pons to the diencephalon  Smoothes and coordinates the contractions of skeletal muscles.to the brainstem id the diencephalon.1 g 2 cm Major parts of the brain: Major parts Brain stem Description Consists 3 structures:  Medulla oblongata   Pons midbrain Function Forms the inferior part of the brain  Connects diff. includes: Thalamus Hypothalamus Epithalamus Cerebrum The “seat of intelligence” . Down-top: Brain stem→ cerebellum→ diencephalon →cerebrum Main differences between the human nervous system and the frog‟s nervous system: Criteria Number of cranial nerves Number of spinal nerves Size of cerebrum Presence of thalamus Presence of gyri Weight of the brain Length of the brain Human Human has 12pairs of cranial nerves Human has 30 pairs of spinal nerves Larger size of the cerebrum There is presence of thalamus Present 1400g 15 cm Frog Frog has 10 cranial nerves Frog has 10 spinal nerves Smaller size of the cerebrum No presence of thalamus Absent 0. Supported by the brain stem and the diencephalon is the cerebrum. speak.  control of execution of voluntary  Cerebellum Has highly folded surface and resembles a shape of a butterfly Diencephalon Surrounds the third ventricle .to make calculations.  for the perception of sensory information.  Regulates posture and balance Thalamus  relays almost all sensory input to the cerebral cortex Hypothalamus  controls and integrates activities of the autonomic NS  Regulates emotional and behavioral patterns  Provides the ability to read.write. which is the largest part.

The clavicle is S shape bone and the scapula is triangular .movement. and the sternum( includes the ribs) Appendicular skeleton  Consists of the pectoral and the pelvic girdle. and narrow in the middle and broad at both the ends. and bones of the hind limbs. Composed of 33 bones Made up of 10 vertebrae A V. Clavicle of the frog is rod shape bone while the scapula is dorsoventrally flattened. Skull Human  Bony structure composed of 22 bones  Somewhat irregularly circular or oval like structure   Made up of 26 vertebrae Basin-shaped ring of bones connecting the vertebral column to the femurs. structural differences observed between the human skeleton and the frog‟s skeleton in terms of: Criteria a. Forelimbs   Radius and ulna are separated bones Has two forearm bones Tibia and fibula are separated bones Tarsals comsists of 7 bones Consists of 30 bones in four locations Presence of patella   f. And C shape arch like structure. Activity 32: “the skeletal system” Two main division: Axial skeleton  Compose of the skull. scapula. Consists of four pairs of bones. Pelvic girdle d.

Radius and fibula are fused together to form what is called the radio-ulna Has only one forearm bone Tibia and fibula are fused together called tibio-fibula Tarsals have 2 bones on the proximal row and 3 on the distal row No patella    b. Consists of two bones the clavicle and the scapula. vertebral column . Frog  Frog‟s skull is somewhat triangular and ventrally flattened.

Number of vertebrae: Human 33 vertebrae for the young 26 when reached adulthood Frog 10 vertebrae How do the structures of the atlas and urostyle of the frog‟s vertebral column differ from the regular vertebra? Criteria Presence of prezypophysis Appearance in the vertebral column Presence of zygapophyses in the neural canal Regular vertebra ( typical ) Present With two long bone at the sides of the neural Has two articulating processes or zygapohyses in the neural canal Atlas and urostyle(atypical) Absent Ring-like bone for the atlas and long bone with a median. dorsal elevation for the urostyle No zygopophyses in the neural canal for the urostyle Post labs: zoology 1L .
