    Calcium regulation has significant effects on the human body's capacity to maintain homeostasis. Around 99% of the body's calcium is found within the skeleton in the form of calcium salts. The remaining 1% is found in blood and controlled within a very narrow range by an elaborate system of controls to provide for fundamental processes (Marieb & Hoehn 2010). Calcium is the most abundant cation found in human bodies, vital to normal function of a host of processes including: nerve excitability,

  • Low Calcium Bath

    Tyrode’s solution with a low calcium bath. This caused a decrease in tone of contractions. This occurs because the muscles need calcium to contract. The calcium bids to calmodulin, which leads to muscle contraction. So this low concentration causes fewer and less toned contractions. When 20% calcium is added to the solution it enables more calcium to bind to the receptors, thus causing more contractions. However, when we replaced the low calcium bath with a high calcium bath the contractions nearly
