Homeostasis Quizzes & Trivia

Homeostasis refers to the idea that something will always try to return to a baseline. Most living things have some degree of homeostasis. It’s the process that allows the human body to react to the world around it. Did you know that technology has created systems with artificial homeostasis?
Examples are cruise control, thermostats, and autopilot systems. Did you know that some of the body conditions that are affected by homeostasis include the pH of urine, body temperature, blood glucose levels, and hydration status? Homeostasis requires three different things to function. Can you name them? If you said a sensor to monitor the situation, a mechanism for change, and a connection to allow feedback, then you might be ready to take some of our trivia quizzes and see how much you really know.
