It's easy!

Go to the GameBuilder and get started!

Topics of this game:
  • Maintains homeostasis by resisting or reducing any deviation from an ideal normal value.
  • Medical therapy is often designed to help this type of feedback.
  • When a deviation from a normal value occurs, the response is to increase the deviation.
  • Negative feedback mechanisms
  • Self-amplifying cycle where a change leads to even greater change in the same direction.
  • Which of these is true for a positive feedback mechanism?
  • Which of these is true for a negative feedback mechanism?
  • Contractions in childbirth is an example of a
  • Positive feedback loops
  • The feedback in this loop tends to stabilize the system.
