Sweating - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (553 words)
Sweating (also called perspiration or sometimes transpiration) is the loss of a watery fluid, consisting mainly of sodium chloride (commonly known as salt) and urea in solution, that is secreted by the sweat glands in the skin of mammals.
Sweating is increased by nervousness and nausea and decreased by cold.
The sweat glands are controlled by sympathetic cholinergic nerves which are controlled by a centre in the hypothalamus.
