Homeostasis

Homeostasis is a state of balance inside the body. The body maintains homeostasis by controlled releases of hormones (chemicals). The release of hormones is controlled by negative feedback, much the same way a house thermostat works. When the temperature rises above a set point, or normal range, the thermostat turns on the air conditioner. When the temperature once again falls within normal range, the thermostat signals the air conditioner to turn off. The endocrine system uses negative feedback to maintain homeostasis, as illustrated by the amount of sugar in the bloodstream. Insulin is a hormone, secreted by the pancreas, that maintains a normal blood sugar level. Shortly after you eat a candy bar, sugar molecules enter the bloodstream, raising blood sugar levels. In response to this elevated level of blood sugar, the pancreas secretes insulin, causing sugar molecules to move out of the bloodstream and into skeletal muscle, fat, and liver cells.

  • "This program investigates how the body controls its internal environment. The steady state of the Earth's biosphere is compared to that of the human body. An automated greenhouse and a computerized inventory system demonstrate how negative feedback loops use detection and response to maintain their own balanced states. The regulation of body temperature in response to extreme heat and cold is explored both in a sauna and on a mountain slope. The roles of the pancreas and liver in controlling blood glucose levels are described. And the control of water concentration at the cellular level and waste filtration via the kidneys are explained. The impact of alcohol consumption on temperature regulation and water management is also considered."@en
  • "In order to understand homeostasis in a natural setting, this program observes what happens to the body during a marathon race. By monitoring the various physiological responses of one of the runners, we show the many changes and adjustments being made in the body as the race progresses. The data obtained from the runner are used to explain in detail how the body regulates temperature, blood oxygen, blood glucose, water balance, heart rate, breathing rate, and hormone levels. The program provides a complete introduction to the following topics: Homeostatic mechanisms within the body; Regulation of temperature; Regulation of blood sugar; Feedback systems; Role of hormones; Water balance."@en

  • "Subjected to frequent changes in temperature, moisture, diet, and other external conditions, the human body has developed an important regulatory system that maintains internal stability and metabolic efficiency. This program introduces students to the phenomenon of homeostasis, illustrating its crucial importance and how it works inside the body. Homeostatic mechanisms for detecting and counteracting changes are explored, along with the roles of the nervous and endocrine systems in maintaining a balance. Viewers will gain insight into the workings of stimulus-response pathways and the chemical and physiological factors involved. Viewable/printable educational resources are available online.
