[Multifunctionality and homeostasis. Regularities of the organism functioning important for maintenace of homeostasis].Zh Evol Biokhim Fiziol 2009 Jul-Aug; 45(4):443-51ZE
This paper is a continuation of our first paper ""Zonal model" of description of homeostasis"  that discussed some general regularities of the organism functioning connected directly with maintenance of homeostasis. It might seem that consideration of such general issues could have been only of theoretical interest; however, for the recent years, a trend has been formed in direction of cholistic physiology and medicine when there are considered first of all the organism functioning regularities responding for maintenance of its integrity in norm and in pathology. A particular attention in the present paper is paid to consideration of multifunctional possibilities of organs and functional blocks. In our opinion, such analysis can promote solution of general problems of physiology and medicine and provides a possibility to better understand organization of processes in the organism throughout the lifespan as well can help in elucidation of causes of some chronic diseases.
