Homeostasis Homeostasis Presentation Transcript

  • Sir Charles Blagden What are effects of extreme heat on the body? How do we resist heat? See the video

  • Thermoregulation is an example of homeostasis def’n - the property of a system that regulates its internal environment and tends to maintain a stable, constant condition despite changing external conditions
  • Thermoregulation is an example of homeostasis def’n - the property of a system that regulates its internal environment and tends to maintain a stable, constant condition despite changing external conditions All living things exhibit homeostasis
  • Homeostatic systems require: a receptor - monitors and responds to changes in the system a control center - sets the range for the condition an effector - produce an action which moves the system back into the desired range

  • Thermoregulation
  • Thermoregulation When too hot: • sweat • vasodilation (blood vessels open up so warm blood can get to surface of skin)
  • Thermoregulation When too hot: • sweat • vasodilation (blood vessels open up so warm blood can get to surface of skin) When too cold: • shiver • goose bumps • vasoconstriction (blood vessels close up so heat isn’t lost through the skin) • adrenal and thyroid glands - increase overall metabolism
  • Blood sugar regulation cc licensed flickr photo by EUSKALANATO: http://flickr.com/photos/ 17657816@N05/1971827663/ Receptor (hypothalmus) responds to high blood sugar level Control center (hypothalmus) Sends signal to the pancreas releases insulin cc licensed flickr photo by djneight: http://flickr.com/photos/thedjneight/4119439462/
  • Effects of insulin • cells absorb more glucose (blood sugar) • liver stores glucose as glycogen • fat storage Lower blood sugar level
