Hypothalamus in Health and Diseases

The human hypothalamus, a small structure at the base of the brain, has strategic importance for the harmonic function of the human body. It controls the autonomic nervous system, neuroendocrine function, circadian and circannual rhythms, somatic activities, and behavior, and is situated at the borders between the brain and the body and the brain and the soul, meeting points for mind and body. The hypothalamus is involved in a wide range of higher mental functions, including attention, learning and reinforcement of mnemonic processes, emotional control, mood stability, and cognitive-emotional interactions. It also has a role to play in behavioral disorders, panic reactions, cluster headache, gelastic epilepsy, mental deficiency, periodic disorders, depression, autism, and schizophrenia, and in a substantial number of neurodegenerative diseases. It enlarges greatly the dimensions of the hypothalamic contribution in controlling psychosomatic equilibrium and retaining internal unity of the human existence.

We have been investigating the hypothalamic control of the generation and maintenance of the circadian temperature rhythm (CTR). Using implanted telemetry devices and automatic drinking measures, we monitored the rhythms of body temperature and drinking in rats before and after various types of hypothalamic damage. When we divided the CTR up into five components--phase, amplitude, limits, precision and period--we found that each component could be affected independent of the others. For instance, after lesions of the suprachiasmatic nuclei, the putative
