Homeostasis (body temperature)




Body Temperature

  • Energy loss and energy gain fron your body need to be balanced so that your body temperature remains constant
  • Energy is transferred from blood to the tissues when it reachs the coller parts

Controling body temperature requies

  • Temperature receptors in the skin to detect the external temperature
  • Temperature receptors in the brain to measure the teperature of blood
  • The brain which acts as a processing centre, to recieve information from temperature receptor, responding by triggering the effectors
