Nervous system:
* Is an organ system containing specialized cells called neurons that coordinate the actions of an animal and transmit signals between different parts of its body.
* Thecentral nervous system of vertebrates (such as humans) contains the brain, spinal cord, and retina. The peripheral nervous system consists of sensory neurons, clusters of neurons called ganglia, andnerves. These regions are all interconnected by means of complex neural pathways.
* Neurons send signals to other cells as electrochemical waves travelling along thin fibers called axons, which causechemicals called neurotransmitters to be released at junctions called synapses.
* Nervous system
Sensory neurons are activated by physical stimuli impinging on them, and send signals that informthe central nervous system of the state of the body and the external environment.

* Hormones coordinate responses to stimuli suchas:
-stress
-dehydratation
-growth
-maduration
-glucose level

Ovaries: stimulate uterinelining growth: “ “ “ “ “ “ “ “ “ “ “ female “ “ “ “ “
Pancreas: low and increase blood glucose.
Thyroid gland: stimulate and maintain metabolic process.

Biomolecules:
A biomolecule is anyorganic molecule that is produced by a living organism, including large polymeric molecules such as proteins, polysaccharides, and nucleic acids as well as small molecules such as primary metabolites,...
