mechanism that regulates hormonal secretion
Mechanism that regulates hormonal secretion is called feedback mechanism.
There are two types of feedback mechanisms—positive and negative feedback.
Positive feedback: In this mechanism, the response accelerates after the feedback. The effect is further intensified in the same direction. It helps in speeding up the process occurring in various body systems. It is the opposite of negative feedback.
Negative feedback: In this mechanism, the information given by the feedback causes a reverse response. It occurs when the system needs to slow down or completely stop a process.
Most hormone secretions are regulated by negative feedbacks. The 3 main feed backs are:1)(Blood level of certain chemicals controls hormone secretion) Blood composition2)(Hormones controlled by nervous system) Neural control3)(Hormone secretion controlled by other hormones) Hormonal control
