In this article you will get the clue that from where and how the questions are being framed from the chapter Control and coordination
The experts of have full confidence that you will not miss any of the questions in the board exam as well as in competitive exams from this chapter if you will keep the following terms / question in your mind while studying

  • Brain is the highest coordinating centre in the body. Explain

Cerebrum: Processes & Coordinatessensory messages

Midbrain: Regulates vital functions such asheartbeat andbreathing  

Pons: Relays messages from the cerebrum to thecerebellum & spinalcord

Medulla Oblongata: Allow brain to communicate with the rest of the nervoussystem

Spinal Cord: Controls voluntary movement, speech, intelligence, memory,& sensory processing

Cerebellum: Helps, coordinates & fine tune movementand balance

Pituitary Gland: Produces hormones involved inregulating growth,puberty, metabolism,water&mineral balance,the body’s responseto the stress & more

Hypothalamus: Regulates functions like thirst, appetite& sleep patterns

  • Hormones are kind of chemical messengers. Explain
  • Name all glands in our body having both exocrine and endocrine functions?
  • What is hormonal system? Position of endocrine glands in human body.
  • Functions of all glands in our body
  • What are the two main centers for the coordination of two systems?
  • What all can happens if the pituitary glands do not function properly
  • How hormones help in coordinated growth?
  • Sense organs of our body
  • Is walking different from reflex action

 Q. Match the following

                  Hormones      function
