We went over the following systems last week
Intergumentary System: Skin, hair, nails
Muscular System: Cardiac, Smooth Muscle, Skeletal Muscle
Circulatory System: Heart, Lungs, Aorta, Veins
Skeletal System: Bones and Cartilage
Urinary System: Bladder, Kidneys, Ureters
Digestive System: Salivary Glands, Liver, Gallbladder, Pancreas, Stomach, Mesentery, Small Intestine, Large Intestine
Nervous System: Brain, Spinal Cord, Nerve Cells
this week we will cover
Endocrine System: communication within the body using hormones made by tissues including the hypothalamus, pituitary, thyroid, and adrenal glands
Lymphatic System: transfers lymph fluid from tissues into the blood and includes the cells and organs of the immune system, lymph nodes, spleen and bone marrow
Respiratory System: organs involved in the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between the air and the blood. Organs include trachea, lungs, and diagram
Reproductive System: development of offspring, testes, penis, ovaries and uterus
the brain and endocrine system are quite connected
Parts of the Brain and what they do
Somewhat true, overall true, but its not that simple:
The left side of the brain is responsible for controlling the right side of the body. It also performs tasks that have to do with logic, such as in science and mathematics. On the other hand, the right hemisphere coordinates the left side of the body, and performs tasks that have do with creativity and the arts.
Right/Left cerebral hemisphere:
The hypothalamus acts as the connector between the endocrine and nervous systems to achieve this. It plays a part in many essential functions of the body such as:

The Dangers of Ingesting Alcoholic Drinks And Xanax Together
Both Xanax and alcohol depress the central nervous system, which is responsible for your breathing. Taking both of these drugs can result in breathing becoming so slow and shallow that death ultimately results.
Understanding more about CNS depressants demonstrates why mixing alcohol with other medications can be risky. Specifically, these medications cause the messages being sent through the body by the nervous system to slow down in one way or another. As described by Healthline, slowing down the CNS results in the following:
The GABA receptors are a class of receptors that respond to the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)
Benzodiazepines are a type of medication known as tranquilizers.
Benzodiazepines operate widely in the brain, affecting emotional reactions, memory, thinking, control of consciousness, muscle tone and coordination.
Benzodiazepines enhance the action of the neurotransmitter, GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid).
