temmy  Me it was so weird +  
peridot  I do want to add, that while PGE2 is the right answer, FA19 p.213 says that IL-1 and TNF are involved as well. However, because the question asks about what is going on in the hypothalamus, the answer is PGE2. If the question had been asking about what the macrophages were releasing to influence the hypothalamus, then the answer would have been IL-1 or TNF (FA didn't specify if it was TNF-a though...). +1

Question: based on what we know about the hypothalamic nuclei, would the effect mostly be ont he posterior or anterior nuclei?

Posterior = Heating, so is it being stimulated? Anterior = Cooling, so is it being inhibited?
