Describe the neural, chemical, and physical changes that increase the rate and depth of ventilation during exercise. (2.5 marks);2. Trace the flow of a water molecule through all the anatomical structures from the afferent arteriole to the urinary structures to the end of micturition, and explain the possible fate of such a water molecule. (5 marks);3. Describe (in detail) how the renin angiotensin negative feedback loop helps regulate blood pressure and glomerular filtration rate in response to dehydration. (5 marks);4. Describe the negative feedback loop that stimulates thirst as a result of dehydration. (5 marks);5.
