Why do multi cellular organisms need communication systems
Why do multi cellular organisms need communication systems?

  • Organisms need to detect changes in their external environment eg: pressure on skin, light, sounds, temperature, chemicals etc. The receptor cells need to signal these changes to the organism so it can respond and maintain its safety.


Why do multi cellular organisms need communication systems1
Why do multi cellular organisms need communication systems?

Organisms need to detect changes in internal environments such as temp, pH, water potential of blood , tissue fluid, level of toxins, etc as these can affect the ability of cells to function efficiently.

Enzymes, dehydration, lack of respiratory substrate, toxins inhibiting metabolism, etc.

Why do multi cellular organisms need communication systems?

  • Organs work together to maintain a constant internal environment with different organs having different functions. These functions have to be co-ordinated to keep the environment constant (Homeostasis)

  • Pancreas, liver, muscles, digestive system organs are all used to maintain blood glucose levels.

Why do multi cellular organisms need communication systems?

  • Cell Signalling: one cell releases a chemical that is detected by another cell. The second cell may respond to the chemical signal in any of a large number of ways depending on the type of cell and the chemical stimulus recieved.

  • Nerve impulses are transmitted by neurone networks across synapses using neurotransmitters. This allows fast signalling and responses to rapidly changing stimuli.


Homeostasis
Homeostasis travel in the blood stream and are picked up by their target cells. The endocrine system enables long-term responses.

  • What does it mean?

  • Write a definition and give some examples

  • blood salt concentration

  • relative water potential of blood, tissue fluid and cells,

  • pH

  • Blood pressure

  • CO2levels

Can you complete this with some real life examples?


Stretch and challenge questions
Stretch and challenge questions travel in the blood stream and are picked up by their target cells. The endocrine system enables long-term responses.

  • Remember Stretch and challenge is about making synoptic links

  • You need to access information from previous work and use it in your explanations in this module.

  • In the questions asked you need to use information from the sections on enzymes and natural selection.

  • Complete the card sort to see how different Ectotherms deal with regulation of temperature


Control of temperature
Control of temperature travel in the blood stream and are picked up by their target cells. The endocrine system enables long-term responses.

  • Ectotherms

  • Seek sun or shade depending on outside temperature

  • Expose more or less body surface to sun

  • Alter body shape to change surface area

  • Increase breathing movements to evaporate more water

Labelling neurone diagrams
Labelling Neurone Diagrams warm and cold conditions.

Use these terms to label the diagrams you have been given.

  • Axon - specialised to conduct the action potential away from the cell body

  • Axon terminals – release neurotransmitter to signal to other cells

  • Dendrites- extend from cell body and receive neurotransmitter from axon terminals of other neurones

  • Cell body- contains nucleus, mitochondria, ribosomes

  • Axon Hillock - point at which the chemical signal received may reach the threshold needed to produce an action potential

  • Myelin sheath-insulating fatty layer composed of Schwann cells

  • Nodes of Ranvier - Gaps between Schwann cells

  • Dendron – branch of neurone that conduct the action potential towards the cell body


Structure of neurones
Structure of neurones warm and cold conditions.


Establishing the resting potential
Establishing the “Resting Potential” warm and cold conditions.

  • At rest, the inside of a neuron's membrane has a relatively negative charge.

  • As the figure shows, a Na+ / K+ pump in the cell membrane pumps 3 sodium ions out of the cell and 2 potassium ions into it.

  • However, because the cell membrane is a bit leakier to potassium than it is to sodium, more potassium ions leak out of the cell, increasing the positive charge outside.

  • There are also many organic anions (-ve charged) in the cytoplasm

  • As a result, the inside of the membrane builds up a net negative charge relative to the outside. (-70mV is the resting potential, the cell is “polarised”

All stimuli produce warm and cold conditions.generator potentials but some don’t cause a big enough change in p.d. to reach threshold potential so no action potential is generated.

You should be able to: warm and cold conditions.Describe and explain how an action potential is generated.Interpret graphs of the voltage changes taking place during the generation and transmission of an action potential.


Reaching the threshold potential
Reaching the threshold potential warm and cold conditions.

  • Any stimulation of a receptor cell causes some of the sodium channels to open.

  • So some Na+ions diffuse down their concentration gradient back into the cell

  • This reduces the potential difference across the membrane

  • If the reduction is big enough (ie reaches the threshold potential) then voltage gated channels open


Small stimuli don’t cause a big enough change in warm and cold conditions.p.d. to generate an action potential.

(P.d. doesn’t reach generator potential.)

35


Generating an action potential
Generating an Action Potential warm and cold conditions.

  • Stimulation of the receptor causes Na+ channels to open. The bigger the stimulus the more channels open.

  • Na+ ions diffuse into cell lowering potential difference

  • This makes even more channels open (positive feedback)

  • When potential difference reaches threshold (-50mV) the voltage gated Na+ channels open


Generating an action potential 2
Generating an Action Potential (2) warm and cold conditions.

  • As more Na ions flood in the potential difference across the membrane changes to +40mV

  • Voltage gated K channels open and Na channels close (2&3)

  • K ions diffuse out of cell repolarising the cell (4)

  • So many ions diffuse out that the cell is hyperpolarised (5)

  • The Na/K pump re-establishes the resting potential (6)


Local Current warm and cold conditions.


Transmission of action potentials in myelinated neurones saltatory conduction
Transmission of Action Potentials warm and cold conditions.in myelinated neurones (Saltatory conduction)

  • AP at 1 causes Na ions to move into axon

  • Na ions diffuse to areas of –ve charge further down axon towards 2

  • Voltage gated Na channels are only present at Nodes of Ranvier

  • So new AP starts at 3 and so on

  • The impulse moves in one direction only as it takes time to re-establish distribution of ions using the Na/K pump.

  • So the neurone cannot depolarise again immediately in that region (refractory period)
