-Structure and functions of neurons & neuroglia

-Divisions of the nervous system (afferent v. efferent, central v. peripheral)

-Nerve Impulses: action potential, synapses

-Brain: cerebrum (4 lobes), cerebellum, thalamus, hypothalamus, brainstem

-Spinal cord & reflex arc

-Senses: touch receptors, taste buds, olfactory receptors, structure of eye and vision, structure of ear and hearing

-Peripheral nervous system: reflex arc, cranial nerves, spinal nerves

Case studies are a great way to encourage critical thinking and extend learning for each body system. Check out my Nervous System Case Studies on Bell's Palsy and Acute Flaccid Myelitis.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that feedback mechanisms maintain homeostasis. Examples of investigations could include heart rate response to exercise, stomate response to moisture and temperature, and root development in response to water levels. Assessment does not include the cellular processes involved in the feedback mechanism.
Develop and use a model to illustrate the hierarchical organization of interacting systems that provide specific functions within multicellular organisms. Emphasis is on functions at the organism system level such as nutrient uptake, water delivery, and organism movement in response to neural stimuli. An example of an interacting system could be an artery depending on the proper function of elastic tissue and smooth muscle to regulate and deliver the proper amount of blood within the circulatory system. Assessment does not include interactions and functions at the molecular or chemical reaction level.
