These signals go to the hypothalamus, which coordinates thermoregulation in the body. The posterior hypothalamus controls responses to cold, and the anterior hypothalamus controls responses to heat. The endocrine system plays a role in regulating mood, growth and development, tissue function,metabolism, and sexual function and reproductive processes. Rosenheld, M. (2015, January 3). Biology Reference. Retrieved January 6, 2015, from The hypothalamus is important for coordinating an individual's interestin rewards with the body's physiological state. This region integrates brain function with the physiological needs of the organism. It has connections with autonomic nervous system which controls the glands and smooth muscles, blood vessels and the heart. It influencesvarious kinds of emotional responses accompanied by physiological arousal. Krishna. (2012, June 18). Role of Hypothalamus in Emotion.
