Homeostasis of Body Temperature
Please answer the following questions in your own words. The assignment should be approximately 1000 words excluding diagrams and references. Where diagrams are used they are referred to in the text. The assignment must be coherent and concise with accurate spelling and punctuation. All information must be APA referenced with both in-text citations and a Reference List. Homeostasis of Body Temperature (Thermoregulation). Define homeostasis. Define negative and positive feedback mechanisms. State TWO EXAMPLES for each feedback mechanism. Describe how the body uses a NEGATIVE FEEDBACK SYSTEM TO DECREASE BODY TEMPERATURE when we become TOO HOT. Include: State the normal range of body temperature with units. For the three components of the feedback system, name the structure (body part) involved, and describe how the functions of these body parts contribute to the maintenance of homeostasis. Microbiology – E. Coli. State the scientific name for E.COLI. Describe how the structure and function of an e.coli cell are different from that of a human cell. INCLUDE Four difference between the two cells. For each difference, STATE the difference, DESCRIBE the difference, and COMPARE it to a human cell. E.coli can have positive and negative effects on people’s wellbeing. DESCRIBE: How it can positively and negatively impact the digestive system. How it can negatively impact the urinary system.
