A New Day

Tucson Weather Today


I have no text prepared for today. Not yet, anyway. If something develops later in the day I will insert it here.



sphincter [sfing-tuhr]
 A ringlike band of muscle that surrounds a bodily opening, constricting and relaxing as required for normal physiological functioning.

A sphincter is an anatomical structure, a circular muscle that normally maintains constriction of a natural body passage or orifice and which relaxes as required by normal physiological functioning. Sphincters are found in many animals; there are over 50 types in the human body, some microscopically small, in particular the millions of precapillary sphincters.

Sphincters prove effective in the mediation of the entrance or release of liquids and fluids; this is evident, for example, in the blowholes of numerous marine mammals.

At the anus, in humans, there are two sphincters which control the exit of feces from the body. The inner sphincter is involuntary and the outer is voluntary.
