Homeostasis
(A responsibility of the  ANS and Endocrine System)
The physiologic process of maintaining an
internal environment (ECF environment)
 compatible with normal health
 Autonomic reflexes maintain
 set points
and modulate organ system functions via
negative feedback
in pursuit of homeostasis
Negative feedback 
 is the major control process used to maintain a stable internal environment

Components of a

control system
Negative feedback:
Initiation of responses that counter deviations of controlled variables from their normal range Measures control variable Recognizes deviation of normal set point value

 Attempt to restore set point value Important variable maintained within a normal range Effector opposes stimulus
stretch receptors, chemo-, baro-, osmo-, and thermo-receptors etc.
