What is the digestive function of the liver? Describe the role of bile and how its release is controlled. How does liver cirrhosis disrupt this function?
Introduction: An introduction should briefly describe the body system associated with the topic and identify its general role briefly. This should be followed by an identification of the factor/s influenced by the body system (in relation to the question) and why they need to be kept within a homeostatic range. Lastly, briefly describe what factor/s in the case disrupt homeostasis to cause disease. (75-100 words)
Body: The body of your descriptive piece expands on what was identified in the introduction. The mechanisms used by the body system to maintain homeostasis of the factor identified should be described. An explanation of how factors identified in the question disrupt the homeostatic mechanisms to cause disease should be provided and conclude with what could be expected to occur with such disruption. A final sentence should indicate that the processes identified are summarized in the following concept map. (400 words)
Summary Concept Map: Explained in the following slides.
A note on referencing: Appropriate in text referencing should be used along with the provision of a reference list. It is expected that 3-5 citations would be appropriate and that they are relatively recent (within the last 6 years). You should make use of your text book as a significant reference. **Use at least one journal article and NO website references-they are not reliable sources**
