Feedback mechanisms may be either positive or negative. Negative feedback mechanisms are the more common in the human body. Like a city works, they regulate the day-to-day activities of the body. The output in this system is used to turn off the stimulus. A good example of this is explained below, with the cooling system in a room used to regulate room temperature. Positive feedback mechanisms, in contrast, are like the emergency responders. They are not as common and they use the responses to intensify the original stimulus.

Each is described below: 1 In simple diffusion a small, nonpolar, uncharged particle diffuses directly through the phospholipid bilayer of the plasma membrane. Oxygen gas enters our cells by simple diffusion, and carbon dioxide gas leaves our cells by the same process. Other substances that diffuse across plasma membranes include fatty acids, steroids, and fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K). 2 Simple diffusion also can be a channel-mediated type protein channel. This is how small substances such as ions diffuse through a plasma membrane.
