This chapter deals with brain temperature as a physiological parameter, which is determined primarily by neural metabolism, regulated by cerebral blood flow, and affected by various environmental factors and drugs. First, normal fluctuations in brain temperature that are induced by salient environmental stimuli and occur during motivated behavior at stable normothermic conditions are examined. Destabilization of thermal control can arise from failure of central or peripheral components of the autonomic nervous system, resulting in syndromes of poikilothermia, hypothermia or hyperthermia. Core temperature is the predominant factor in the regulation of autonomic effector responses while both core and skin temperatures contribute equally in behavioural responses that are aimed at Author: Kenneth J.

The regulation of body temperature is one of the most critical functions of the nervous system. Here we review our current understanding of thermoregulation in mammals. We outline the molecules and cells that measure body temperature in the periphery, the neural pathways that communicate this information to the brain, and the central circuits. Organized into six parts, this book begins with an elucidation of the integrative role of the autonomic nervous system in the regulation of cardiovascular function. Parts II and III explain neural reflex control of the heart and cerebral blood flow regulation. Regulation of body temperature in vertebrates is a function of a central mechanism and the main thermoregulatory organ is again the hypothalamus, particularly the preoptic area (POA), where the sensory input on the brain temperature and core temperature is integrated (Boulant, ).Other parts of the central nervous system, such as the brainstem and spinal cord, are also involved in.   If your body temperature rises as high as °F (42 °C), you can suffer brain damage or even death. Many factors can affect your body’s temperature, such as spending time in cold or hot.

The central neural pathways for the regulation of body temperature have been recently reviewed (47, 49, 50). A wide variety of nonthermal physiological parameters, disease processes, neurochemicals, and drugs can influence the central regulation of body temperature, and their effects are hypothesized to result from an alteration of the activity. The regulation of body temperature is one of the most critical functions of the nervous system. Here we re-view our current understanding of thermoregulation in mammals. We outline the molecules and cells that measure body temperature in the periphery, the neural pathways that communicate this information to the brain, and the central circuits. The ability to react to thermal challenges and regulate body temperature depends on the ability of the nervous system to sense temperature both in the environment and deep within the body core. The basis of the neural control of thermoregulation is the synaptic communication between peripheral and central thermal receptors. Analysis and Simulation of the Cardiac System Ischemia book.
