Abstract

Heat production in brown adipose tissue contributes to cold defense, to stress-induced increases in body temperature, and to energy balance. Elucidating the functional organization of the central network controlling the sympathetic outflow to brown adipose tissue could provide a framework for understanding how dysregulation of thermogenesis contributes to hyperthermia and to obesity.
