Dear students

A gentle reminder for your upcoming Unit test of Biology which is scheduled on 30th August.

Topic: Co ordination and Response

1.Describe the human nervous system in
terms of the central nervous system (brain
and spinal cord as areas of coordination)
and the peripheral nervous system which
together serve to coordinate and regulate
body functions.
2. Identify motor (effector), relay (connector)
and sensory neurones from diagrams.
3. Describe a simple reflex arc in terms of
sensory, relay and motor neurones, and a
reflex action as a means of automatically
and rapidly integrating and coordinating
stimuli with responses.

4.Describe the structure and function of the
eye, including accommodation and pupil
reflex.
