Homeostasis Links


STANDARD 9: As a result of the coordinated structures and 
functions of organ 
systems, the internal environment of the human body remains 
relatively 
stable (homeostatic) despite changes in the outside environment. 
As a basis 
for understanding this concept: 

9a: The complementary activity of major body systems provides 
cells with 
oxygen and nutrients and removes toxic waste products such as 
carbon 
dioxide. 

9b: The nervous system mediates communication between different 
parts of the 
body and the body's interactions with the environment. 

9c: Feedback loops in the nervous and endocrine systems regulate 
conditions 
in the body. 

9d: The functions of the nervous system and the role of neurons 
in 
transmitting electrochemical impulses. 

9e: The roles of sensory neurons, interneurons, and motor neurons 
in 
sensation, thought, and response. 

*9f: The individual functions and sites of secretion of digestive 
enzymes 
(amylases, proteases, nucleases, lipases), stomach acid, and bile 
salts. 

*9g: The homeostatic role of the kidneys in the removal of 
nitrogenous 
wastes and the role of the liver in blood detoxification and 
glucose 
balance. 

*9h: The cellular and molecular basis of muscle contraction, 
including the 
roles of actin, myosin, Ca+2 , and ATP. 

*9i Hormones (including digestive, reproductive, osmoregulatory) 
provide 
internal feedback mechanisms for homeostasis at the cellular 
level and in 
whole organisms.
