THERMOREGULATION Control of body temperature © 2008 Paul Billiet ODWSODWS
Core temperature The core temperature of the human body is 37°C The core of the human body includes the organs of the thorax, abdomen and the head This is where the vital organs are located Their enzyme systems must operate in optimum conditions The periphery of the body can withstand some deviation from the core temperature © 2008 Paul Billiet ODWSODWS
Heat loss and heat gain The body must balance its heat budget Heat is gained: by conduction from warm air surrounding the body by the bodys metabolic activity which generates heat e.g. when muscle move Heat is lost: by conduction and radiation to cold air (or water) by evaporation of sweat from the body surface (c.f. properties of water) Humans can also affect their body temperature by changing their behaviour e.g. wearing different clothes, seeking shade © 2008 Paul Billiet ODWSODWS
Maintaining the body temperature Keeping warmStaying cool Increased insulation, subcutaneous fat reduces the conduction of heat from the body Increase blood flow to skin, increases conduction and radiation of heat from the body Reduced sweating decreases evaporation Increased sweat secretion, increases evaporation Increased shivering, increases heat produced by muscle tissue 2 to 5 times Reduced activity © 2008 Paul Billiet ODWSODWS
nerves Less heat generated More water covers the skin. More evaporation Skin arteries dilate More blood to the skin. More radiation & conduction of heat Muscles of skin arteriole walls relax Sweat glands increase secretion Muscles reduce activity Core body temperature >37°C Hypothalamus Thermoreceptors © 2008 Paul Billiet ODWSODWS
Thermoreceptors Return to 37°C Muscles of skin arteriole walls relax Core body temperature >37°C Hypothalamus Sweat glands increase secretion nerves Muscles reduce activity Thermoreceptors NEGATIVE FEEDBACK Blood temperature Body loses heat © 2008 Paul Billiet ODWSODWS

Temperature regulation HBS3A. Homeostasis Maintenance of constant internal environment This involves continually replacing substances as they are used.
Do you think The Iceman can really will himself to be warmer? In the next 30 sec, list 5 things you might do to try and warm up if you were him…
HOMEOSTASIS Ability of the body to maintain a relatively constant internal environment necessary for life.
Temperature Regulation By the end of the lesson you should know How the body corrects overheating How the body corrects overcooling What thermocreceptors.
The brain is a complex organ consisting of several different regions. The CEREBRUM is the largest part of the brain and is divided into 2 connecting hemispheres.

Homeostasis and negative feedback control. Advantages of Homeostasis Homeostasis has survival value because it means an animal can adapt to a changing.

The Human Body: Organ Systems and Homeostasis Lesson 1: Standard 9c. Students know how feedback loops in the nervous and endocrine systems regulate conditions.
Feedback Mechanisms Response to Environmental Changes.
Nervous System/ Endocrine System. Nervous System Nervous system: The system of cells, tissues and organs that regulates the body's responses to internal.
Homeostasis Glossary Maintain – keep up. Maintain – keep up. Constant – the same. Constant – the same. Internal – inside the body. Internal – inside.
EDU2EXP Exercise & Performance Environment and Exercise.
Homeostasis A condition in which the internal environment of the body remains relatively constant despite changes in the external environment. Examples.
Human Body Systems Section 35–1. Human Body Systems Section 35–1 This section describes human organ systems and explains how the body maintains homeostasis.
