Three men and three women were exposed to transients of air temperature (range, 16--48 degrees C). Whole-body sweating rate, local tissue heat flows, and O2 consumption in the cold were linearly related to a weighted sum of tympanic and mean skin temperatures, called "central drive," During changes in air temperature, changes in subjects' scaled estimates(More)
In Figure 13 we have tried to summarize the interactions of thermal and nonthermal control of effector responses, the effects these responses have on the body during exercise, and the ways the changing state of the body feeds back on the central control systems. These systems were depicted in Figure 3 and are included in condensed form in Figure 13.(More)
Several authors have argued that skin blood flow (SkBF) during exercise is less than during rest at the same levels of body core and whole-body skin temperatures (Tc and Tsk). Since such an effect does not prevent SkBF during exercise from rising above pre-exercise levels, it is sometimes called a relative cutaneous vasoconstriction. Such a vasoconstriction(More)
