    A very nice article. My main suggestion is to include a figure showing the various nuclei of the hypothalamus. Other minor points:

    1. par. 2 of Architecture: correct "witht"

    2. par. 2 of Inputs: correct "and determines it personal importance". I'm not sure what this means.

    3. par. 1 of Homeostatic: correct "tenths of degree"

    From the other reviewer:

    I also think this is a very useful article which would be much improved with figures. One main figure showing the location of various nuclei, their inputs and outputs. Secondary figures for the different functions of the hypothalamus, mostly showing or highlighting the particular nuclei involved and their interactions.

    One minor thing: there are no citations in the text, just a list of references at the end.
