Step 1

For warm blooded animals, prime concern is to maintain a steady state of internal physical and chemical conditions, which is known as homeostasis. The conditions at homeostasis are optimal for functioning of the organism.

In case any external factor, stimulus, which tends to destabilize the system and drives it away from homeostasis, comes into action, then the physiological system of the organism tends to undo the change caused. This is called negative feedback.

 

Step 2

Decrease in body temperature, i.e. hypothermia is a stimulus.

This stimulus is sensed by thermoreceptors i.e. nerve cells.

The receptors then convey it to the control center, i.e. regulatory centres in ...
