A. initiation event

B. control center

C. effector

D. receptor


What detects that the system is outside of homeostasis and adjustments need to be made?

A. effector

B. response

C. control center

D. stimulus


Which of the following describes homeostasis?

A. keeps variables exactly at the set point

B. organism’s ability to maintain steady(stable) internal conditions

C. acts to keep values outside of a desired range

D. operates through positive feedback


Identify the stimulus that restores homeostasis.
