    About the Lecture

    The lecture Functions and Segments – Urinary System by Thad Wilson, PhD is from the course Renal Physiology. It contains the following chapters:

    • Primary Renal Functions
    • Nephron Segments

    Included Quiz Questions

    1. Secretion
    2. Filtration
    3. Reabsorption
    4. Excretion
    1. Collecting duct
    2. Proximal convoluted tubule
    3. Proximal straight tubule
    4. Thick ascending limb
    1. Glomerular capsule
    2. Thin ascending limb
    3. Thin descending limb
    4. Proximal convoluted tubule
    5. Medulla
    1. Inner medulla
    2. Cortical nephron
    3. Outer medulla
    4. Cortex
    5. At the junction of cortex and medulla
    1. Osmolality of the urine cannot be less than 300 milliosmoles
    2. More energy is required for reabsorption through distal convoluted tubule than in the thin descending limb
    3. Process of transport is iso-osmotic
    4. Most of water reabsorption occurs in the thin descending limb
    5. Osmolality in the distal and proximal convoluted tubule is the same

    Very detailed
    By daisy g. on 25. March 2017 for Functions and Segments – Urinary System

    I think if you're looking for a very detailed explanation of the system, I think this video is perfect and it goes at a very good pace too. I only needed an specific amount of information, so I ended up watching a video that was too specific for me to use.
