When the hypothalamus is informed of a condition, it secretes chemicals and hormones to the blood stream to signal the body for an innate and necessary response. Hunger, thirst, self-defense, and sexual reproduction are included in that list of important sensations. Just like the brain tells an organism when it is hungry, it also signals the body to react when an attractive being walks by.
