Homeostasis and Allostasis

Interactive Infographics for Desktop and Mobile Browsers

Everyone experiences stress. It's part of life. The Interfactive platform allows students to go beyond just reading about stress; they can explore it! With the tap of a finger or click of a mouse, students will uncover more information, illustrations, and animations that delve into what stress is.

In this interfactive, students will explore the definitions of organism, homeostasis, and allostasis, observe how allostasis can disrupt normal bodily functions, compare homeostasis in warm and cold blooded animals, and differentiate between the short and long term effects of allostasis on the body.

The Homeostasis and Allostasis interfactive is part of the All About Stress series.
