How could you describe the positive feedback system that occurs during labor?

The process of labor is induced by the release of the hormone Oxytocin from the pituitary gland. Oxytocin causes smooth muscle contraction associated with the uterus. Uterine contraction in turn causes the release of more Oxytocin from the pituitary, which causes more contraction. this represents a positive feedback loop of increasing amounts of Oxytocin and uterine contraction. Contractions of the uterus of course result in the movement of the fetus out of the birth canal (leaving the uterus, passing through the cervix, and out through the vaginal opening.

What is a peristaltic contraction?

A peristaltic contraction is controlled by the autonomic nervous system and is the contraction of smooth muscle in the digestive system to create a wave-like motion, allowing food and digested materials to be transported through the digestive system. This process is called peristalsis. It is mostly controlled by the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.


What movement acts on the food from time it leaves the mouth to the time it is digested?
