The quadrants formed are the right-upper, left-upper, right-lower, and left-lower quadrants. In addition to these quadrants, the abdomen is sometimes subdivided into nine regions by four imaginary lines: two horizontal and two vertical. 12b). Clinicians use the quadrants and regions as reference points for locating underlying organs. For example, the appendix is located in the right-lower quadrant, and the pain of an acute appendicitis is usually felt there. 11 Body Parts and Regions The anatomical and common (in parentheses) names are indicated for some parts and regions of the body.

B) Deuterium has one proton and one neutron in its nucleus. (c) Tritium has one proton and two neutrons in its nucleus. number of protons plus the number of neutrons in each atom. For example, the mass number for carbon is 12 because it has six protons and six neutrons. PREDICT 2 The atomic number of potassium is 19, and the mass number is 39. What is the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons in an atom of potassium? Isotopes and Atomic Mass Isotopes (ı¯Јso¯-to¯pz) are two or more forms of the same element that have the same number of protons and electrons but a different number of neutrons.

Receptors that monitor blood pressure are located within large blood vessels near the heart and head. A control center located in the brain receives signals sent through nerves from the receptors. The control center evaluates the information and sends signals through nerves to the heart. 5). If blood pressure increases slightly, the receptors detect the increased blood pressure and send that information to the control center in the brain. The control center causes heart rate to decrease, resulting in a decrease in blood pressure.
