How do the radiators on the ISS take in all the heat generated by all the electronics and humans and dissipate out? ?

Is the heat funnelled through air tubes and then handed to the radiators to do their job? How does the heat get transferred from all different locations to the single location of the radiator?

    There is a system of cooling water running in pipes inside the ISS. Actually, two systems, at 40 °F and 60 °F.

    The ISS has heat dissipators to radiate excess heat. Space is an infinite heat sink.
