The mitral valve prevents the oxygenated blood from flowing back into the left atrium. Left and right bundle branches Second systole phase This is a segment of the network of specialised conducting fibres that transmits electrical impulses within the ventricles of the heart.

1). There are two layers; an outer layer of white matter and in inner layer made up of grey matter, which surrounds a small central canal. The spinal cord is enclosed within the vertebral canal which forms a protective ring of bone around the cord. Other protective coverings include the spinal meninges, which are three layers of connective tissue coverings which extend around the spinal cord. The spinal meninges consist of pia matter (inner layer), arachnoid matter (middle layer) and dura matter (the outermost layer which consists of a dense, irregular connective tissue).
