The organ systems of the body include the musculoskeletal system, circulatory system, digestive system, endocrine system, integumentary system, urinary system, lymphatic system, immune system, respiratory system, nervous system and reproductive system.
Human Body Systems
Organ Systems and Function, Location, Anatomy, Definition and Picture:
- Skeletal System: The skeletal system is the system that supports us and gives us our shape.
- Muscular System: The muscular system is the anatomical system of a species that allows it to move. The muscular system in vertebrates is controlled through the nervous system, although some muscles (such as the cardiac muscle) can be completely autonomous.
- Digestive System: The digestive system provides the body’s means of transforming food to energy.
- Lymphatic System: The lymphatic system is a network of conduits that carry a clear fluid called lymph.
- Endocrine System: The endocrine system is a system of glands that involve the release of extracellular signaling molecules known as hormones.
- Nervous System: The nervous system is a network of specialized cells that communicate information about an organism’s surroundings and itself.
- Circulatory System: The circulatory system is an organ system that passes nutrients, gases, hormones, blood cells, nitrogen waste products, etc. to and from cells in the body to help fight diseases and help stabilize body temperature and pH to maintain homeostasis.
- Urinary System: The urinary system (also called excretory system or the genitourinary system) is the organ system that produces, stores, and eliminates urine.
- Immune System: The Immune system is the body’s main defense against all foreign substances.
- Integumentary System: The integumentary system is the organ system that protects the body from damage, comprising the skin and its appendages (including hair, scales, and nails).
- Respiratory System: A respiratory system’s function is to allow gas exchange.
- Reproductive System: The reproductive system is the system that allows for the continuation of the human species. This system is different in both males and females: Male reproductive system and female reproductive system.
