System Organs Immune System Organs of the immune system lymphocytes: white blood cells
from lymphatic or lymphoid organs: bone marrow thymus
lymph nodes spleen originate in bone marrow, migrate to thymus, mature into leukocytes lymph nodes capture antigens and hold lymphocytes lymph vessels ultimately empty into blood supply can spread cancer cells
spleen filters blood Soldiers of the Immune System White blood cells phagocytes: nonspecific immunity
macrophages and monocytes lymphocytes: respond to specific antigens T-cells: cell-mediated immunity
Killer T cells Helper T cells Memory T cells Suppressor T cells Delayed hypersensitivity T cells Soldiers of the Immune System B-cells: antibody-mediated immunity
B-cells produce plasma cells which produce antibodies (immunoglobulins - Ig) Igs attach to antigen and identify it for destruction Memory B-cells Helpe
rT Cells The Immune Response First lines of defense skin mucous membranes of respiratory and
digestive tracts Next: non-specific and specific immune processes phagocytes, B-cells, helper T-cells destroy antigen Finally: killer T-cells destroy
invaded cells Immune System and the Brain Auto-immune Diseases Rheumatoid arthritis: joints Rheumatic fever: heart muscle Multiple Sclerosis: myelin Lupus erythematosus: skin and kidneys
Genetics Chromosomes contain genes DNA dominant and recessive genes
phenotype and genotype mutations Polygenetic inheritance likely the case for many behavioral traits
Inside the Dome… The dome may seem like a big inflatable igloo and once you're inside it's really rather dark. The large projector system, featuring a curved reflective surface of pure silver, sends images and information across the near entirety...

What is a Volcano??? Volcanoes are often cone-shaped, but they can take other shapes too. They are formed when molten, sticky rock called magma, forces its way through a crack in the Earth's crust. The melted rock that spills out...
