  • Constant Body Temperature
    • When the body is too hot
      • Vasodilation
        • Blood vessels at the skin's surface increase in diameter

              • Blood vessels at the skin's surface increase in diameter
            • Sweating
              • Body basically evaporates heat
          • When the body gets too cold
            • Vasocontriction

            • Shivering
              • Increases muscle respiration and warms tissues
