REFLECTION ON HOMEOSTASIS 2 Reflection on Homeostasis Reflection on Homeostasis: Homeostasis is basically maintaining equilibrium in or bodies. The human body (organism) is like an ecosystem and our organs and cells must be able to survive in this ecosystem. Our body’s systems work together to maintain homeostasis in our body. Homeostasis is achieved by making sure the temperature, pH, and oxygen levels (among many other factors) are set just right to be able to survive. (Martini & Bartholomew, 2017, p. 6,11) Homeostasis normally requires three parts for it to work, receptors, control center and the effector. A good example of a receptor is our skin. If our environment changes, for example, if we get too cold or too hot, the temperature receptors in our skin receive information that something is changing. The receptors send a signal to the brain, which is our control center. Our brain will then activate the effectors, which are the blood vessels and sweat glands in our skin.
