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.
