Discusses the evolutionary story of the brain and thermoregulation, with an emphasis on modern humans. Covers the control of body temperature as a survival mechanism, the mechanisms of the brain's environmental independence, and how it copes with environmental extremes.
This book represents a significant contribution to the field, as the authors have crossed the lines between zoology, anthropology, physiology, psychology, and the study of evolution, to create a story about one of the fundamental requirements for sustaining life--a constant body temperature. --Steven M. Frank, M.D., Associate Professor, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions
