Sample text

Inadequacies in negative-feedback systems can be improved by anticipation and acclimatization It is important to note that, even with the added sophistication of antagonistic control, a basic referenced negativefeedback system (sensor, integrator with set points, and effectors) has two inherent flaws. First, it cannot be perfectly homostatic (“same state”), because it must first suffer a disturbing change before it can react and make corrections, resulting in a delayed response. Similarly, there is another delay in shutting off an effector, and so basic systems tend to overshoot the set point somewhat.

Repairing damage to the cell. • Correcting deviations in internal conditions, which threaten other functions (homeostasis). Self-support and movement: Having structures that give specific form to the cell, the ability to move materials within the cell, and (in some cases) the ability to move the whole cell or organism through the surrounding environment. Self-replication: Reproducing to carry on the species, and to repair damage. Some animal cells, such as nerve cells and muscle cells in mammals, are unable or have greatly restricted abilities to replicate.
