The Hypothalamus—part of the brain primarily concerned with homeostasis

The Hypothalamus is a small part of the brain located just below the thalamus and on both sides of the third ventricle. It sits just inside the two tracts of the optic nerve and right above the pituitary gland. This gland is part of the endocrine system – a network of glands and organs. (The endocrine system is similar to the nervous system in that it plays a vital role in controlling and regulating many of the body’s functions.)

The hypothalamus’s role is mainly concerned with homeostasis.  For example, it regulates things like sleep-wake cycles, hunger and thirst. And also levels of pleasure, sexual satisfaction, response to pain, and anger.  Furthermore, it has a part to play in regulating pulse, blood pressure, and breathing.

The hypothalamus’ function is internal monitoring. Being part of the brain that is associated with inward movement, it constantly keeping track of what’s going on inside the body. Thus, it is a key player in the weight-loss process.

The hypothalamus also regulates functions in the body through its connection to the pituitary gland. The pituitary pumps hormones into the bloodstream that are vitally important in regulating growth and metabolism.
