Life Processes - Control
and Co-ordination
• Property of responding to changes in the environment is called Irritability.
• Nervous system consists of receptors, effectors and conductors.
• The three basic components of Nervous system are
a) Central Nervous system (CNS),
b) Peripheral nervous system (PNS)
c) Automatic nervous system (ANS).
• Brain and spinal cord are the components of Central Nervous System.
• Brain is divided into three parts - forebrain, mid brain and hind brain.
• Cerebrum is the largest part of the brain.
• Parts of the brain below the cerebrum are together known as ‘dienchephalon’.
• Spinal Cord is a long and cylindrical structural passing through vertebral column.
• Peripheral Nervous System includes twelve pairs of cranial nerves and thirty
one pairs of spinal nerves.
• Eyes are the organs of sight and are stimulated by light.
• Diabetic retinopathy, Astigmation, Glaucoma are the disorders of eye.
• The human ears are the sense organs meant for hearing and maintenance of
body balance.
• The Nose is the organ of smell and breathing.
• Exocrine glands discharge their secretions through the ducts to their largest
• Endocrine glands discharge their secretions directly into blood system.
• Pituitary gland is a tiny gland of the size of a ‘pea’ situated at the base of the
• Thyroid gland is located close to the trachea in the neck.
• There are four very small parathyroid glands embedded in the tissues of the
thyroid gland.
• There are two adrenal glands - one on the upper part of each kidney.
• Pancreas is a mixed gland with a portion functioning as an exocrine gland and
another portion functioning as endocrine gland.
• The testis secrete the male sex hormones called androgens.
• The ovaries secrete female sex hormones called estrogens.
• Deficiency of estrogens causes infertility.
• Deficiency of estrogens may cause sterility.
