1.Homeostasis and Feedback Loops with examplesAlot of people does not know what Homeosis and feedback loops means to the body. Homeostasis refersto the bodies as self- adjusting mechanicism of maintaining a steady environment. Homeostasis in thebody is done by your body creating hormones which turns into feedbacks. There are two types offeedbacks which are called negative and positive feedbacks. Most of the feedbacks we have are negativeones. What that means is that negative feedbacks refers to a feedback where the body will try to performa reverse actions towards abnormal body activities. An example of a negative homeostasis feedback canoccurs when blood sugar levels rise and then the body nervous system that will trigger the pancreas.Another example of a negative homeostasis feedback is your thermoregulation would be when your bodytemperature changes and the mechanicisms are induced to to restore the normal levels. A positivehomeostasis Feedback is a mechanicism which can trigger the acceleration of the stimulus after thefeedback. For example, a positive homeostasis feedback is the contraction of the walls of the uterusduring child birth, Lactaction is another example of a positive homeostasis feedback which means whenthe child is feeding it stimulates milk production which causes more feeding.
