Animal Physiology > Homeostasis > Topic 2: Ben's Homeostasis: The Inside Story

(1 of 7)

Yesterday Ben survived a bad day, thanks to his nervous and endocrine systems' ability to maintain homeostasis. Look inside Ben to see how these systems worked.


What you'll learn in this topic

  • How messenger molecules carry signals from one part of Ben's body to another.
  • Why signals from the nervous system are fast and signals from the endocrine system are slow.

Your task is to observe events inside Ben's nervous and endocrine systems. Then you will help recruit new messenger molecules for Ben.
