When the level of a certain hormone gets too high, it stimulates the hypothalamus and anterior pituitary gland to release an inhibatory hormone to make the gland that is secreting the hormone stop making more of it so the level goes down.

The endocrine system has four major mechanisms of control that regulate its functions. They are: Hormonal control, neural control, negative feedback, and positive feedback.

The endocrine system controls body growth and responses. Through the use of chemical messengers called hormones, it works with the endocrine system to control body responses.

The nervous system and the endocrine system control the negative feedback systems of the body.

Many hormones are used in negative feedback loops. It is the dominate control mechanism of the endocrine system (the other being positive feedback).

The response of your glands is involuntary and controlled by a negative feedback system.

Metabolism Homeostasis is the general term for keeping balance in the body, and applies to endocrine gland secretion as well. Most endocrine gland activity maintains homeostasis through negative feedback. Positive feedback also has a role. Stimulus may be humoral or neural.

Endocrine system secretes hormones and other substances into the blood stream in order to control behavioral processes, such as responses to stress. the endocrine system controls biological processes, such as appetite, metabolism and growth.

an example of feedback control is the insulin in your body

difference between feedback and control

The combination of an endocrine gland and a hormone is a working endocrine gland that has a chemical messenger called a hormone. The hormone can be either manufactured by that gland itself, a stored hormone that another gland made, or it can be a positive or negative feedback hormone as part of the hormonal control system.

The hypothalamus is the master control center of the endocrine system.

Humoral Stimulation is one of the least complicated of the endocrine control systems. It directly responds to changing blood levels of ions and nutrients. I can not answer the last part without having your answer options.

The endocrine system is involuntary. A person cannot control the endocrine system by will.

The Hypothalamus. Most of its funstions relate to regulation of visceral activities including: cardiovascular regulation, body-temperature regulation, water and electrolyte balance, gastrointestinal activity and hunger, sleeping and wakefulness, sexual response, emotions, and control of endocrine functions through stimulation and anterior pituitary.

Do nerves control the responses of plants? False. It is the chemical growth regulators that control the growth of a plant.

Negative feedback mechanism is used by two body systems: the nervous system and the endocrine system. The nervous system is the quick one and uses an intricate circuitry of neurons and your brain to respond to changes. The endocrine system is the slow one and is made up of endocrine glands that secrete hormones to counter changes.

Yes! Although we have total control over these muscles, they still need stimulation to contract. The difference with muscles that we don't control is that we decide if we want to make this stimulation.

Endocrine glands secrete hormones which control the cells of the body.

Endocrine glands secret hormones which control the cells of the body.

the endocrine system is responsible for synthesizing sex hormones which control the reproductive system.

The endocrine and nervous systems control the endocrine system. Messages from these systems cause the endocrine glands to change their production of hormones.

Controlled largley by negative feedback, when hormone levels rise, signals are transmitted to the endocrine organ, releasing the hormone, telling the organ to decrease the amount of hormone released.

· Feedback control · Concurrent control · Feedforward control

Temperature control is regarded as an example of negative feedback because it is used in homeostasis.
