12.1 Introduction

Physiological and Engineering control system look similar to each other. A physiological control system explores some control problem related to biological ­environment and provides solution to the control researchers. The involvement of control theory makes the biomedical application more efficient and natural. The control mechanism in the biomedical application that comprises components that are necessary for maintenance of homeostasis at all levels of living systems is discussed in this chapter. The positive and negative feedback control mechanisms for maintaining homeostasis are also discussed.
