Rat hypothalamus neurons
The hypothalamus is responsible for many metabolic processes and other activities of the Autonomic Nervous System. It synthesizes and secretes neurohormones, that stimulate or inhibit the secretion of pituitary hormones. The hypothalamus controls body temperature, hunger, thirst, fatigue, and circadian cycles.
