Homeostasis: Control of body temperature

The human body is designed to function most efficiently at 37ºC. Temperature sensors in the skin and brain detect changes, and the brain processes this information and sends nerve impulses to effectors (eg sweat glands). The responses produced by the effectors help us to maintain a constant body temperature.
