Learning Aim 7 - "Discuss water balance in the body"
You are effectively a giant bag of salty water (60% of the mass of a healthy adult male is from water). The vast majority of our cellular processes rely on happening in water with the correct concentrations of chemicals in it. We need to finely balance this to maintain good health. This section is about how we manage this.
Success: You know what you need to for this section when:
Task A - Homeostasis Model - A negative feedback loop
Task B - The kidneys and body water balance
After participating in class discussion and brainstorm about water balance
Task C - ADH (Anti-diuretic hormone) and homestasis
Create a flow chart which shows how your body uses ADH to maintain homestatic control over water levels.
