An example of negative feedback is the control of glucose (suagr) by insulin. When the blood sugar rises the body senses that there is some kind of change. The pancreas (control Center) secretes insulin into the blood lowering blood sugar levels. Once the blood sugar reaches homeostasis the pancreas stops releasing insulin.

A good example of positive feedback is child birth. During labor a hormone called Oxytocin is released (produced by the hypothalamus) to speed up contractions. The cycle goes on until the child is born. When the child is born the oxytocin stops being released.

Homeostasis is the maintenance of internal stability in all organisms. (Equilibrilibrium)

An example of organisms that undergo homeostasis are mammals and birds. They undergo a different way than humans do. It is a combination of hormones, the endocrine system, and metabolism.

Homeostasis describes an environment that helps support the survival of all cells. All body systems work together to maintain homeostasis throughout the entire body. It is used to make sure that the temperature and oxygen levels are set correctly for you to survive. All homeostasis levels are different for different species.



Snakes and other warm blooded animals rely completely on their environments to maintain homeostasis.
