What is temperature control in humans?

1 Answer

The hypothalamus is the processing centre in the brain where the body temperature is controlled in the human body.


The hypothalamus controls the body temperature by triggering changes to the effectors such as sweat glands and muscles controlling body hairs.

One of the most important jobs of the hypothalamus is to maintain homeostasis and control certain hormones in the body.

Heat stroke can happen when the human body gets too hot and hypothermia when the body is too cold.
