The rise of a fever may also trigger a positive feedback mechanism. Notice in Fig. 1–3 that bacteria have affected the body’s thermostat in the hypothalamus and caused a fever. The rising body temperature increases the metabolic rate, which increases body temperature even more, becoming a cycle. Where is the inhibition, the brake? For this infection, the brake is white blood cells destroying the bacteria that caused the fever. An interruption from outside the cycle is necessary. 3957_Ch01_002-025 06/10/14 10:25 AM Page 13 Organization and General Plan of the Body It is for this reason, because positive feedback mechanisms have the potential to be self-perpetuating and cause harm, that they are rare in the body.

The parietal pleura lines the chest wall, and the visceral pleura covers the lungs. The heart has its own set of serous membranes called the pericardial membranes. The parietal pericardium lines the fibrous pericardial sac, and the visceral pericardium covers the heart muscle. Organs in the abdominal cavity include the liver, the stomach, and the intestines. The membranes of the abdominal cavity are also serous membranes called the peritoneum and mesentery. The peritoneum is the membrane that lines the entire abdominal wall, and the mesentery (or visceral peritoneum) is the continuation of this membrane, folded around and covering the outer surfaces of the abdominal organs.
