The digestive system, also known as the gastrointestinal tract, is the system of organs that takes in and digests food for the nutrients and energy and expels waste. Digestion starts in the mouth with chewing food and the addition of saliva to moisten the food

Digestive system & urinary tract educational anatomy posters Images include the digestive system, the kidney, the liver, disorders of the digestive system, diabetes, ulcers and the dangers of alcohol.

Digestive System

Poster Text: The digestive system is responsible for taking in the food we ear and converting it in to nutrients that the body uses to sustain itself. The digestive system performs two functions: breaking down food into small molecules, and absorbing these molecules into the body. These process allow the nutrients from the food to enter your blood system in order to be distributed throughout your body. These nutrients are used to produce energy and a building blocks for growth and repairing tissues. ...

Taste

While a newborn has taste buds all over the inside of the mouth, adults' taste buds are mainly on the surface of the tongue. An adult has as many as 10,000 taste buds. Taste bud cells last only a week before being renewed by the body.
The sense of taste works in conjunction with the sense of smell to create flavor. The taste of food is a combination of several factors, including the feel of the food in the mouth, its smell, and its appearance.
The temperature of food also influences taste. When food is warm or hot, it releases more chemicals into the air. These trigger our sense of smell, which increased flavor. Heat increases the flavor of sweetness, while cold decreased it. Taste buds also seem to work better at warmer temperatures.

Taste buds on the tongue are located around the base and sides of papillac.
BITTERNESS is tasted at the back of the tongue.
SOURNESS is tasted along the sides of the tongue.
SALTINESS is tasted along the side at the front of the tongue.
SWEETNESS is tasted at the front of the tongue.

Urinary System

Poster Text: The urinary system is responsible for filtering waste from the blood and removing it from the body. To begin the process, the renal arteries transport blood into the kidneys. These arteries contain small branches at their ends that allow them to enter the nephrons, which remove harmful substances from the blood. As the kidneys clean the blood, liquid water - known as urine - is produced. Once the kidneys have filtered the blood, the urine passes through the ureters to the bladder. Here the urine is stored until it is expelled from the body. ...

Saliva

Digestion of food starts in the mouth with saliva, the watery, and usually frothy substance produced in the mouths of humans and most other animals that moistens food so it can be swallowed easily.

Ivan Petrovich Pavlov
b. 9-14-1849; Russia
d. 2-27-1936; Leningrad

Ivan Pavlov, physician, physiologist and experimental psychologist, was awarded the 1904 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for research on the digestive system. He is best remembered for being the first to describe “classical conditioning” learning that involved the the salivary glands of dogs.

Pavlov quotes ~
• “It is clear to all that the animal organism is a highly complex system consisting of an almost infinite series of parts connected both with one another and, as a total complex, with the surrounding world, with which it is in a state of equilibrium.”
• “It has long been known for sure that the sight of tasty food makes a hungry man's mouth water; also lack of appetite has always been regarded as an undesirable phenomenon, from which one might conclude that appetite is essentially linked with the process of digestion.”
