Homeostasis TAQ3 part 1

Postby LouiseJ2701 » Sat Apr 07, 2018 4:31 pm

Hiya,
Wondering if anyone can help me?
I am working on TAQ 3 part 1 and I'm unsure as to what mechanism I can write about as an example. Would levels of carbon dioxide be one of these? As I am unsure how that would link to the endocrine system?

Thank you
Louise Jennings

I guess you are talking about the Aspects of Human Physiology assessment and not Homeostasis.

The question asks for an example from the endocrine system. Carbon dioxide level regulation is not really the endocrine system as there is more nervous control here. A good example is that of blood glucose level regulation as there are clearly two hormones here responsible for maintaining the blood glucose level.
