Additional Learning

To learn more about feedback systems, review the accompanying lesson on Regulating Homeostasis with Feedback Systems. This lesson covers the following objectives:

  • Identify what homeostasis is and its importance
  • Distinguish the differences between positive and negative feedback mechanisms
  • Recall specific characteristics and examples of negative feedback
  • Review components of positive feedback and an example of this mechanism
  • Learn about an alteration and how that can affect homeostasis
  • Understand how diabetes affects homeostasis and the natural feedback systems to maintain homeostasis
