NEGATIVE FEEDBACK

opposed to a positive feedback is a system which detects a change from a constant, and then stimulates various effectors which then attempt to restore the system to the constant in the beginning. An example of this is the control of the blood-glucose levels in human beings, which is a negative feedback loop system in the Pancreas.

NEGATIVE FEEDBACK: "Negative feedback loops are essential to the maintenance of homeostasis within the human body."
