A number of hormones play a role in thermoregulation including adrenalin (epinephrine) and noradrenaline (norepinephrine), whose release increases cellular metabolism and thyrotropinreleasing hormone, which is produced in the hypothalamus and causes the pituitary to release thyroid-stimulating hormone, which then stimulates thyroxine release and an increase in cellular thermogenesis. Thermoregulation is less developed in the young child, with sweat glands increasing following puberty. Infants cannot shiver, but shivering ability develops as the nervous system develops.
