Homeostasis
maintains some conditions inside the body at a constant level
1 of 6
Negative feedback
mechanisms respond to a change in a condition to help bring the condition back to the normal level
2 of 6
Osmoregulation
controls how much water is lost in urine, and so controls the amount of water in the body
3 of 6
Thermoregulation
keeps core body temperature steady at around 37 degrees
4 of 6
Vasodilation
when more blood flows near skin surface
5 of 6
Vasoconstriction
when less blood flows near skin surface
