Module 8 | Non-infectious disease and disorders

Content 1: Homeostasis

Lesson 1 | Homeostasis

  • construct and interpret negative feedback loops that show homeostasis by using a range of sources, including but not limited to: (ACSBL101, ACSBL110, ACSBL111)
    – temperature (ACSBL098)
    – glucose

Lesson 2 | Mechanisms to maintain homeostasis

  • investigate the various mechanisms used by organisms to maintain their internal environment within tolerance limits, including:
    – trends and patterns in behavioural, structural and physiological adaptations in endotherms that assist in maintaining homeostasis (ACSBL099, ACSBL114)
    – internal coordination systems that allow homeostasis to be maintained, including hormones and neural pathways (ACSBL112, ACSBL113, ACSBL114)
    – mechanisms in plants that allow water balance to be maintained (ACSBL115)
