Human Behavioral Temperature Regulation: An Exercise Approach
Behavior represents our most effective and preferred mode of regulating body temperature. However, knowledge concerning the control of this behavior in humans is relatively limited. Mr. Schlader established and validated an exercise-based experimental model to evaluate human thermoregulatory behavior. Using this model and other interventions, Mr. Schlader was successful in identifying that skin temperature, thermal perception, and circulatory adjustments all uniquely contribute to the control of this behavior. These findings have a number of applications, particularly in occupational, sporting, and exercise settings in which individuals are repeatedly exposed to hot environments.
