Role of Homeostasis in Human Physiology: A Review

  title={Role of Homeostasis in Human Physiology: A Review},
  author={S. Palaparthi},
Homeostasis plays a major role in the proper functioning of the body. It is regulated by different mechanisms such as osmoregulation, thermoregulation and chemical regulation by different systems in the body like respiratory system, digestive system, nervous system, urinary system. These systems maintain the stability of the body by releasing the stimulus when the hormone levels increases or decreases. The stimulus is generated; the cells act accordingly to maintain the proper functioning of… Expand
