Interaction & Coordination

  1. 1. Interaction and coordination   
  2. 2. What is interaction?All living beings interact with their environmentand with other living beings to survive.Interaction enables livings beings to recieve andrespond to a stimulus.Interaction involves different elements...   
  3. 3. Interaction is...StimuliReceptorsCoordination systemsResponsive organs (effectors)   
  4. 4. Stimuli are... Detectable changes in the internal or external environment which provoke responses. They can be:   ­ Physical: light, sound, temperature...   ­ Chemical: substances like water, oxygen...   ­ Biotic: other living beings    
  5. 5. Receptors are... Structures which receive stimuli from the external or  internal environment.  In animals, they are called sense organs.   
  6. 6. How do receptors work ?Sense Sense organ How do they work?Sight Eyes They detect lightSmell Nose (vertebrates) They detect chemical substances dissolved in air or Appendage water (arthropods)Taste Tongue It detects chemical substances dissolved in water. It is covered with tiny taste buds.Hearing Ears They detect sound.Touch Skin (vertebrates) They detect pressure, touch, pain and temperature Appendage changes. (arthropods)   
  7. 7. Activities 1.­  Test a classmate on sense organs.    A: Which sense organ detects chemical substances in air?    B:  The nose.   
  8. 8. Activities 2.­  Can you solve these sense organs riddles? This organ is used by...  … arthropods to smell things.  … fish to detect temperature changes.   … most animals to detect pressure.   … some animals to distinguish sounds.    
  9. 9. How does coordination workin animals? Coordination involves processing information  received from receptors and producing appropriate  responses.  Animals have two coordination systems: Nervous system Endocrine system   
  10. 10. Nervous system The nervous system receives information, interprets it, and  transmits a response to the responsive organs or effectors. It includes:  The central nervous system. (CNS)  This consists of the brain and the spinal cord.  It analyses information and decides on a suitable response.   The peripheral nervous system (PNS): carries nerve impulses  from the nerve centres to all other parts of the body.   
  11. 11. Activities  Indicate which coordination system is working in  each of these situations:   Putting  your  hand  close  to  a  flame  and  then  taking  away  quickly.  Maintaining an adequate level of sugar in the blood.  Stopping when a car comes when crossing the street.     
  12. 12. How do the responsiveorgans work? There are two types of responses to stimuli: Motor responses: the response is movement Endocrine responses: response is the release of hormones   
  13. 13. Motor responses invertebrates Motor responses are controlled by organs in the motor  system, which consists of: Skeletal system (internal): bones supports the body. Muscular system: muscles are contractile organs  attached to the bones by tendons.   
  14. 14. Endocrine responses They are controlled by glands in the endocrine system.  Glands produce chemical substances called hormones. Hormones:  Are released into the blood. Control and coordinate activities throughout the body     
  15. 15. Endoncrine system Both  vertebrates  and  invertebrates  have  endocrine  systems.  It  regulates  functions  which  require  maintained responses. These include:  Metamorphosis of some animals Growth  Production of milk in mammals Metabolism  (chemical  processes  in  living  things  that  change food into energy and materials)   
  16. 16. The pancreas The pancreas is a gland  which controls insuline  secretion in order to  regulate glucose levels  in the blood.    
  17. 17. Activities  Are these statements true or false?  Only vertebrates possess an endocrine system  Hormones are transported in the blood.  The pancreas is part of the motor system.  Responses from the endocrine system are immediate and  rapid.     
  18. 18. Activities Are the following responses controlled by the nervous  system or the endocrine system?  A child growing up  A dog chasing a cat  A cow producing milk  Dancing to music  A tadpole changing to a frog
