Give an account of the mechanism concerned with the regulation of body temperature

Dear Student,

Body temperature is regulated by constriction and dilatation of blood vessels. In winters, blood vessels constrict to increase the body temperature while in summers, blood vessels dilate to decrease the body temperature. Other mechanisms to regulate the body temperature are by sweating (In summers, sweating decreases the body temperature) and shivering (In winters, body temperature increases by producing heat through shivering).

Hope it helps you!
Thanks and Regards.
