55.Which of the following is most likely to cause disease? A.Positive feedback B. Negative feedback C. Homeostasis D. Equilibrium E. Irritability
Blooms Level: 1. Remember Gradable: automatic HAPS Objective: B02.02 Compare and contrast positive and negative feedback in terms of the
relationship between stimulus and response.
HAPS Topic: Module B02 General types of homeostatic mechanisms. Learning Outcome: 01.06e Define positive feedback and give examples of its beneficial and harmful effects. Section: 01.06 Topic: Major Themes of Anatomy and Physiology56.Blood glucose concentration rises after a meal and stimulates the pancreas to release the hormone insulin. Insulin travels in the blood and stimulates the uptake of glucose by body cells from the bloodstream, thus reducing blood glucose concentration. This is an example of _________.
Blooms Level: 3. Apply Gradable: automatic HAPS Objective: B03.02 Provide an example of a negative feedback loop that utilizes the endocrine system to relay information. Describe the specific cells or molecules (production cells, hormones, target cells) included in the feedback loop. HAPS Topic: Module B03 Examples of homeostatic mechanisms. Learning Outcome: 01.06d Define negative feedback, give an example of it, and explain its importance to homeostasis.
