How Does the Body Maintain Temperature?

Answer

The human body regulates its core temperature between 36.5 and 37.5 °Celsius ( °C) by keeping a tight balance between heat gain and heat loss. Core temperature is regulated by the hypothalamus, which is often called the body's thermostat. The hypothalamus responds to various temperature receptors located throughout the body and makes physiological adjustments to maintain a constant core temperature.
