34.4 Digestive System Regulation
Emesis is the removal of food from the mouth.
It is often in response to an irritant that affects the bicyle, including but not limited to viruses,bacteria, emotions, sights, and food poisoning.
The stomach muscles produce strong contractions when expelling food.
The process of emesis is regulated.
The sensation of hunger and satiety is controlled by the brain.
Neural and hormonal responses regulate the functions of the digestive system.
The salivary glands produce saliva in response to stimulation by the nervous system.
The stomach makes hydrochloric acid to digest the food.
The brain controls the peristaltic movements of the esophagus and other parts of the GI tract.
These muscles are prepared by the brain as well.
The part of the brain that senses satiety is located in the stomach.
There are three different phases of gastric control, each requiring a different amount of enzymes and neural control.
Seeing a plate of food causes saliva to be produced in the mouth and stomach.
Sight, sense, and smelltrigger the neural responses that result in salivation and gastric juices.
The thought of food can cause the salivary and gastric secretion in the cephalic phase.
The increase in salivation is a response to the thought of a piece of chocolate or a potato chip.
The stomach is prepared by the central nervous system.
The stimulation was provided during the cephalic phase.
Gastric acids are used to process the materials.
The gastric phase is stimulated by distension of the stomach, a decrease in the pH of the gastric contents, and the presence of undigested material.
Local, hormonal, and neural responses are part of this phase.
Powerful contractions are stimulated by these responses.
The rate of emptying is controlled by this phase.
When chyme enters the small intestine, it causes other hormonal and neural events that coordinate the activities of the GI tract.
The stomach acid environment is one of the important factors under hormonal control.
The release of stomach acid, or hydrochloric acid, which aids in the digestion of the proteins, is stimulated by gastrin.
A negative feedback mechanism controls this.
In the duodenum, the chyme is broken down by the bile from the liver, pancreas, and gallbladder.
CCK stimulates the pancreas and the gallbladder to release bile into the duodenum.

Look at the animation of how control is implemented in the endocrine system.
In response to the composition of food, another level of hormonal control occurs.
Foods with high levels of lipids take a long time to digest.
Understanding the hormonal control of the digestive system is an area of ongoing research.
Scientists are trying to understand the role of each hormone in the digestion process.
It is possible that advances will lead to knowledge that will help fight the epidemic.
The primary components of food are sugars and fats.
Different animals have evolved different types of digestion but can't be produced by the animal systems that are specialized to meet their needs.
Many animals have monogastric digestive systems and some vitamins and minerals.
Birds have evolved a way to store their food in fat cells and in muscle cells in their body.
Excess fat can be crushed into smaller pieces.
They have serious health problems.
The inability to masticate is the energy currency of inability.
The ruminants are obtained from the metabolism.
Excess amounts of plant material have a multi-chambered stomach and can be stored in the body.
The four 34.3 Digestive System Processes compartment stomach is not present in pseudo-ruminants.
Digestion begins with ingestion, where the food is taken in.
Digestion and absorption take place in a series of large Molecules,cellular absorption takes place in steps with special Enzymes playing important roles in and elimination of undigested waste as feces
Many organs work together to digest and absorb food.
The mouth is where the products from the body are taken.
The large intestine is responsible for the food beginning in the location where both mechanical and chemical breakdown of small intestines occur.
The final removal of water is accomplished by the amylase that is found in saliva.
The stomach has an extremely acidic environment and the intestine can absorb vitamins and minerals.
The large intestine is where pepsin can be found in the stomach.
The waste is stored until elimination.
The animal diet needs to be balanced to meet the needs of the digestion of food.
The small intestine has many folds.
Birds can fly long distances if they eat large quantities at one time.
There is excess sugar in the form of _____.
The chyme is acidic.
The release of blood thinners is caused by the release of sugars.
The excess calories are converted to fat.
A scientist is analyzing an animal.
Lipases break down.
The body can make essential nutrients.
The release of bile from the to a bell is controlled by a hormone.
There are two components of the bicyle that have a balanced diet.
The Gut Microbiome has become a popular area of study in from food.
Discuss why the epidemic of Obesity is growing.
A scientist is studying a model of legs that are different from the rest of the body.
