What is homeostasis mechanism?
Homeostasis is the state in which living systems maintain constant internal, physical, and chemical circumstances.
For example, ability of warm-blooded animals to maintain their constant body temperature despite of the external environment changes.
What are the three key components of homeostasis?

- the control center: receive and process information from receptor
- the effector: opposes or enhances the stimulus in response to the control center's commands.
