The hypothalamus is a brain structure made up of distinct nuclei as well as less anatomically distinct areas. It is found in all vertebrate nervous systems. In mammals, magnocellular neurosecretory cells in the paraventricular nucleus and the supraoptic nucleus of the hypothalamus produce neurohypophysial hormones, oxytocin and vasopressin Continue reading

The stria terminalis (or terminal stria) is a structure in the brain consisting of a band of fibers running along the lateral margin of the ventricular surface of the thalamus. Serving as a major output pathway of the amygdala, the stria terminalis runs from its centromedial division to the ventromedial nucleus of the hypothalamus. Continue reading

The hypothalamus, also known as the "master gland," is a supervising center in the brain that links the body's two control systems, the nervous system and the endocrine system, via interaction with the pituitary gland (hypophysis). The hypothalamus (from Greek , "under the thalamus") is located below the thalamus, just above the brain stem, and occupies the major portion of the ventral region of the brain known as the diencephalon. The hypothalamus is found in all mammalian brains; in humans, it is roughly the size of an almond. Continue reading

Hypothalamus: The Body’s Thermostat | Ask A Biologist

All humans and many animals have a hypothalamus, found in the middle of the brain. Sweat gets a bad reputation, even though it plays an important role in cooling down our bodies when we get too hot. But how, exactly, does your body know when to start sweating? It knows because a part of your brain, called the hypothalamus, tells it to. All humans and many animals have a hypothalamus. The hypothalamus does many things, but two of its most important jobs are to maintain homeostasis and to control certain hormones. Homeostasis is very important to all animals, including humans. If we look at the word, we see that homeo means the same, and stasis means not moving, or holding. So homeostasis means that something is held at the same place. Lets think about homeostasis in terms of body temperature. Most animals maintain, or hold, their temperature at a certain level. For humans, this is about 98.6F (37C). When your hypothalamus senses that youre too hot, it sends signals to your sweat glands to make you sweat and cool you off. When the hypothalamus senses that youre too cold, it sends signals to your muscles that make your shiver and … Continue reading
