Abstract

Homeostasis, the control of an internal environment to maintain stable, relatively constant conditions, is a key concept in physiology (1). In endothermic species, including humans (Homo sapiens), the control of body temperature is fundamental
to the control of a suitable internal environment. To help regulate core body temperature, the body has a number of different responses. For example, under warm conditions by initiating processes such as peripheral vasodilation and sweating, heat is dissipated via the skin’s surface to maintain constant core temperature.
