1. Homeostasis and Feedback Loops with ExamplesGracelyn HowardKeiser University1/09/2018Today I am going to talk about homeostasis and feedback loops. According to my bookhomeostasis is the body’s ability to detect change, activate mechanisms that oppose it, and tomaintain relatively stable internal body conditions. (Saladin, 2018, p.15). Feedback loops arecalled this because feedback mechanisms altar the original changes that triggered them.(Saladin, 2018, p.15).The explanation/ backgroundHomeostasis is the ability to maintain stable internal conditions even when yourenvironment changes. (Saladin, 2018, p.14). Homeostasis depends on your body’s temperatureand fluid balance to be kept within certain limitations. Typically, your body temperature rangesaround 97-99 degrees Fahrenheit even when, outside it might 20 degrees Fahrenheit. This isbecause of homeostasis.There is a thing called negative feedback, in which when the body can
