Though a human is comprised of over fifty trillion cells, there are no 
physiologic functions in our bodies that were not already pre-existing in 
the biology of the single, nucleated (eukaryotic) cell. Single-celled 
organisms, such as the amoeba or paramecium, possess the cytological 
equivalents of a digestive system, an excretory system, a respiratory 
system, a musculoskeletal system, an immune system, a reproductive system 
and a cardiovascular system, among others.>In the humans, these physiologic 
functions are associated with the activity of specific organs.>These same 
physiologic processes are carried out in cells by diminutive organ systems 
called organelles.>
Cellular life is sustained by tightly regulating the functions of the 
cell's physiologic systems. The expression of predictable behavioral 
repertoires implies the existence of a cellular "nervous system." This 
system reacts to environmental stimuli by eliciting appropriate behavioral 
responses. The organelle that coordinates the adjustments and reactions of 
a cell to its internal and external environments would represent the 
cytoplasmic equivalent of the "brain."
