79 of 105
What mechanisms keep the body's internal environment constant?
homeostatic mechanisms
80 of 105
What do homeostatic mechanisms use when controlling the internal environment?
Negative Feedback
81 of 105
What is negative feedback?
It is a stabilising method which reduces increased activity and increases reduced activity.`
82 of 105
Example of Negative Feedback
Blood Glucose - When blood sugar rises, receptors in the body sense a change . In turn, the control center (pancreas) secretes insulin into the blood effectively lowering blood sugar levels
83 of 105
What will a system that uses negative feedback have?
a sensor that monitors (medulla in the brain) and an effector mechanism for changing the conditions.
84 of 105
Which part of the brain controls the body's temperature?
85 of 105
What is the hypothalamus?
Part of the brain that controls the ANS, including the sympathetic division. It detects temperature of the blood flowing through its tissues .
86 of 105
What happens if the hypothalamus detects low temperature of the blood?
Triggers a sympathetic reaction that has the effect of reducing blood flow near the skin's surface
87 of 105
What are the physiological effects of temperature change of the body?
Shivering, shaking, turning a paler colour, hair erection, muscle contraction to generate heat(shivering)
88 of 105
What happens to the body when temperature drops lower than what it is capable of managing?
Hypothermia is contracted - symptoms include being confused and irrational as brain function is becoming impaired.
89 of 105
Example of negative feedback
The body's response to low temperatures - as temperature falls, homeostatic mechanisms operate to conserve heat, increase insulation and generate more heat.
90 of 105
How does negative feedback reduce temperature of the body when over heating?
dilation of blood vessels neart the skin, producing a flushed appearance. Sweating - sweat on the skin evaporates, taking heat from the body's surface.
91 of 105
When is it beneficial for the body's temperature to rise above normal?
As an immune response when fighting infections.
92 of 105
WHat can too high or too low internal body temperature cause?
Brain impairments
93 of 105
Why does heart rate not maintain constant?
the need for tissues to be adequately supplied with oxygen and blood sugar. After or during illness and exercise.
94 of 105
What are the group of muscle cells iun the wall of the heart which trigger the heart to beat?
Sinoatrial Node which acts as a natural pacemaker producing about 100 nerve impulses per minute.
95 of 105
Explain the role of the ANS in terms of heart rate.
The sympathetic division of the ANS tends to raise heart rate in response to an increase in demand e.g. when exercising.
96 of 105
How do homeostatic mechanisms increase heart rate?
By stimulating adrenal glands to release the hormone andrenaline, which then circulates in the blood and soon reaches the heart, where it stimulates an increase in the action of the sinoatrial node.
97 of 105
Other than circulating in the blood, how does adrenaline increase heart rate?
Adrenaline acts as a neurotransmitter. Noradrenaline and adrenaline are released as neurotransmitters from nerve endings of the sympathetic nerves. These also contribute to an increase in heart rate.
98 of 105
What does the parasympathetic division of the ANS tend to do in relation to heartbeat?
Slow it down via the vagus nerve which runs from the top of the spinal cord to the heart.
99 of 105
What factors tend to produce an increase in activity in the sympathetic division of the ANS?
Fear, anxiety, anger or internal conditions such as low blood pressure and an increase in carbon dioxide levels in the blood.
100 of 105
How does exercise increase heart rate?
Because it leads to increased cellular respiration , resulting in the uptake o more oxygen and the production of more carbon dioxide.
101 of 105
High levels of carbon dioxide go together with low levels of oxygen and vice versa. True or False?
102 of 105
What detects the level of carbon dioxide in the blood?
Respiratory centre in the brainstem
103 of 105
If carbon dioxide levels rise what occurs to reduce them?
negative feedback mechanisms operate to reduce them.
104 of 105
What do the negative feedback mechanisms in reducing carbon dioxide levels consist of ?
These mechanisms involve the sympathetic division of the ANS. The bronchi dilate, allowing a faster airflow into and out of the lungs
