    1) Long-

    2) Short-

    3) Flat-

    4) Irregular-

Lecture #2

V. Bone Development and Growth (pg. 188-192)

    Summarize the first paragraph-

VI. Comparison of Intramembranous and Endochondral Ossification
  (Duplicate Table 7.1 here) (Read pgs. 188-192 for further explanations)

Helpful Points

    1. Starts 8 weeks after conception, stops at 25 years.
    2. Our first embronic skeleton is cartilage.
    3. Bone-building cells (osteoblasts) invade the cartilage from the surrounding periosteum.
    4. The osteoblasts hook together and then secrete minerals forming bone.

VII. Homeostasis of Bone tissue 9pg. 192)

    Summarize paragraph-

** Good students will study Figure 7.15

Lecture #6

Calcium Feedback System: (fig. 7.15 or bottom of pg 198)

  Calcium ions (Ca++) in extracellular fluid are necessary for:

    1) blood clotting
    2) muscle contraction
    3) nerve function

  The proper level of Ca++ is controlled by the parathyroid gland

    Location- anterior to trachea (4 total>

  If the level of calcium is too LOW in the extracellular fluid, then:

    1) Parathyroid hormone is secreted which causes osteoclasts to break down bone and release Ca++

    2) Parathyroid hormone also causes more Ca++ to be absorbed fromt he intestines.

  If the level of Ca++ is too HIGH then:

    1) Parathyroid hormone is cut off which causes calcium to be added to the bone.

    2) Thyroid gland releases calcitonin which causes osteoblasts to deposit calcium in the bone
