Anatomy & Physiology Question #39
Which term is described as a feedback mechanism that exaggerates the stimulus with an automatic response?
- Positive feedback
- Extrinsic regulation
- Negative feedback
The correct answer is A. When an initial stimulus causes a response that exaggerates the stimulus and produces a response that exaggerates the stimulus, the mechanism is called positive feedback. Extrinsic regulation, negative feedback, and autoregulation do not produce this response.
