Abstract

Central and peripheral mechanisms are involved in the regulation of body temperature. Hypothalamic nuclei play a predominant role in the central control of thermoregulatory processes, although other structures also seem to be involved at different levels. Evaporative heat loss accomplished by eccrine sweating is the most important of the multiple peripheral mechanisms contributing to the maintenance of thermal homeostasis. Neurological diseases associated with thermoregulatory dysfunction include functional and degenerative disorders. Techniques available for the investigation of thermoregulatory functions at central and/or peripheral levels are presented.
