Homeostasis is the control of the internal environment of an organism, allowing greater independence from external conditions. This control is usually achieved by a system of negative feedback.
Regulation of temperature and blood glucose levels in humans are two good examples of homeostasis. In the case of body temperature, any deviation from the optimum temperature of 37º C is detected by the hypothalamic heat and cold receptors located in the hypothalamus and the peripheral cold receptors in the skin.…
