An analytical study of effect of heat source on MHDblood flow through bifurcated arteries has been done. The blood flowing through arteries is treated to be unsteady Newtonian flow. The coupled linear partial differential equations are solved by converting into ordinary linear differential equations by choosing the axial velocity, normal velocity and temperature field as a functions of y and t along with corresponding boundary conditions. The expressions are obtained for axial velocity, normal velocity and temperature field. The effects of various parameters like Prandtl Number (Pr), Heat Source Parameter (S) and Magnetic Field (M) on axial velocity, normal velocity and temperature field are investigated. It was found that heat source and magnetic field modify the flow patterns and increase the temperature of the blood.
