Homeostasis
  Homeostasis: all body systems working together to maintain a stable internal maintain a stable internal environment environment

  Systems respond to external and internal changes to function within a normal range a normal range (body temperature, fluid balance)

Homeostasis
  Mechanisms of Regulation
  Autoregulation (intrinsic)
cell, tissue or organ   Automatic response in a cell, tissue,or organ to some

environmental change

  Extrinsic regulation
  Responses controlled by nervous and endocrinesystems nervous & endocrine system

Homeostasis
  Receptor
receives stimulus  -Receives the stimulus

  Control center
  Processes the signal and sends instructions

  Effector - effector
  Carries out instructions

Negative and Positive Feedback
  The Role of Negative Feedback
  The response of the effectornegates the effector negates stimulus   Body is brought back into homeostasis   Normal range is achieved

Negative and Positive Feedback
  The Role of Positive Feedback
  The response of the effector increases increases the change of the stimulus   Body is movedaway from homeostasis moved away from homeostasis   Normal range is lost

  Used to speed up processes
