  4. Nervous (and) Endocrine (Systems)
  5. Herophilus (300 BC)
  1. a Greek; conducted the first recorded physiological experiments; dissected the bodies of LIVING criminals; eventually even cadaver dissections outlawed; during the next 1900 years, not much was done in the field of physiology.
  2. b Transfer of heat from the body by currents (air and water).
  3. c Prolonged heat exposure with high humidity. Body gains heat by radiation and convection while evaporative cooling is retarded. Can lead to convulsions, coma, and death.
  4. d Heat Conservation and Heat Production
  5. e These systems play a central, coordinated role in homeostasis.
