  • We would like to emphasize about the system involved with homeostatic maintenance of body temperature. First, the primary mission of the thermoregulatory system is to defend core temperature (Tcore) against changes in ambient temperature (Ta), the most frequently encountered disturbance for the system. Ta should be treated as a feedforward input to the system, which has not been adequately recognized by thermal physiologists. Second, homeostatic demands from outside the thermoregulatory system… CONTINUE READING
