Question and answer
Q: Describe how homeostasis is maintained in the body using the negative-feedback system. Provide an example.
A: Negative feedback occurs when the output of a system reacts to cancel out the effects of an input of a system, as opposed to positive feedback (in which the actions/output is intensified or increased). The more negative, the more stable. [ [ Thus, with things being canceled out, the body maintains homeostasis. An example of negative feedback in action is the maintenance of blood glucose levels
and body temperature. With input of sugar, insulin is released to stabilize the body (on the other hand, without insulin, diabetes can be diagnosed). With a raise in body temperature, blood vessels and pores are opened to release heat. ] ]
