1: Cell theory: All organisms are composed of one or more cells. The cell is a basic unit of life. New cells arise only from cells that already exist.
2: Rudolf Virchow was a German pathologist. Virchow's many discoveries include cells in bone and connective tissue; substances, such as myelin; and pathologies, such as embolism and leukemia.
3: Matthias Jakob Schleiden: 1838 Schleiden proposed that all plants are composed of cells; together with his friend Theodor Schwann he formulated the cell theory of life
4: Robert Hooke was the English scientist and inventor who wrote the 1665 book Micrographia, in which he coined the term "cell" for a basic biological structure.
5: Theodore Schwann: In 1839 Schwann proposed that all organisms are composed of cells. Together with Matthias Schleiden he formulated the cell theory of life. Schwann also discovered the cells, now known as Schwann cells, that form a sheath surrounding nerve axons and conducted experiments that helped disprove the theory of spontaneous generation.
9: The cell membrane separates the interior from the outside environment.
10: Homeostasis: metabolic equilibrium actively maintained by several complex biological mechanisms that operate via the autonomic nervous system to offset disrupting changes
