There are two groups of thermoreceptors.
(i) Peripheral thermoreceptors : present in skin and mucous membrane they are either warm or cold receptors
(ii)Central thermoreceptors : These are present in hypothalamus, spinal cord, various organ and in the great veins.
impulses from various receptors go to posterior hypothalamus at the level of mammillary bodies. This area in turn send signals to perifery for heat producing and heat conserving reaction of the body.
