Negative Feedback Inhibition.
Homeostasis is the dynamic constancy of the internal environment, the maintenance of which is the principal function of physiological regulatory mechanisms. The concept of homeostasis provides a framework for understanding most physiological processes. (taken from Human Physiology, 11th Editon) Some examples of homeostasis would be maintaining heart rate, temperature of your body, breathing, and also glucose in your blood. This is a picture of homeostasis and how it controls the temperature in your body. There are two different types of feedback loops a positive and negative, and there is also a -A positive feedback loop is the action of effectors amplifies those changes that stimulated the effectors. (taken from Human Physiology, 11th editon) An example of a positive feedback loop is blood clotting after a cut. Blood clotting happens once the sensory for it has been triggered and the brain sends information to start blood clotting. Once blood clotting starts it sends information for more clotting factors. -A negative feedback is the effectors are inhibited from producing more or less of their effecting actions. (taken from Human Physiology, 11th edition) An example of a negative f Continue reading >>
