Feedback LoopsPositive and Negative Feedback Loop ExamplesNegative Feedback Loop (In General)

Negative Feedback LoopStimulus- produces a change to a variable (the factor being regulated).Receptor- detects the change. The receptor monitors the environment and responds to change (stimuli).Input- information travels along the (afferent) pathway to the control center. The control center determines the appropriate response and course of action.Output- information sent from the control center travels down the (efferent) pathway to the effector.Response- a response from the effector balances out the original stimulus to maintain homeostasis.
