Grade : Grades Nine Through Twelve
Standards that all students are expected to achieve in the course of their studies are unmarked. Standards that all students should have the opportunity to learn are marked with an asterisk (*).
Area : Biology/Life Sciences
Sub-Strand : Physiology
Concept 9: As a result of the coordinated structures and functions of organ systems, the internal environment of the human body remains relatively stable (homeostatic) despite changes in the outside environment. As a basis for understanding this concept:
b: Students know how the nervous system mediates communication between different parts of the body and the body’s interactions with the environment.
c: Students know how feedback loops in the nervous and endocrine systems regulate conditions in the body.
d.: Students know the functions of the nervous system and the role of neurons in transmitting electrochemical impulses.
e: Students know the roles of sensory neurons, interneurons, and motor neurons in sensation, thought, and response.
