How Does Homeostasis Relate To The Nervous System
Depends: There are many systems in the body that need to be regulated. For instance, if blood pressure goes too high you can stroke; if there is too much cholesterol, you can stroke or get nerve damage. If the immune system is not under control, the brain and nerves can be damaged. If you have vitamin deficiencies or excess, the nerves and the brain could be damaged, etc. ...Read more
Thats a big question: That's a big question that people dedicate their lives to study and find out. All the systems are important in "homeostasis". Narrowing which "homostasis" to a single function or a specific organ may allow a more specific explanation; but still lots and lots of effects. ...Read more
What will happen to the body's nervous systems & endocrine systems if homeostasis is not maintained?
Dysregulation: If homeostasis is completely lost, the body's nervous system and endocrine system would both become dysregulated. You could see all kinds of metabolic and acid-base problems, with altered mental status (delirium, hallucinations, etc) plus blood pressure changes and more. Thankfully, the body knows exactly how to respond to various conditions, so that homeostasis is dynamic, not static. ...Read more

Too Many to Say Here: By circulating blood and other cells the circulatory system suppiles nutrients, energy, protection & a myriad of other things throughout the body to control the balance. It transports hormones to control all aspects of our body & it also helps control our core & extremities temperature and helps remove dead cells throughout the body. It would take books to say all the ways homeostasis is acheived. ...Read more
That's complicated: The cardiovascular system regulates flow of blood to various organs of the body by changing cardiac output and controlling the tone of the blood vessels ( arteries, arterioles and capillaries) that provide blood to these various organs. This is done by various hormones. There are several areas in the body that sense blood flow, oxygen concentration and blood pressure to change blood flow ...Read more
