Individuals with body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) and clinically concerning body-image concern (BIC) appear to possess abnormalities in the way they perceive visual information in the form of a bias towards local visual processing. As inversion interrupts normal global processing, forcing individuals to process locally, an upright-inverted stimulus(More)
The level of stratum corneum hydration is assessed by measurement of the changes in skin resistance and is referred to as the galvanic skin response or electrical skin resistance. Skin erythema may be assessed by measurement of skin blood flow, tristimulus colorimetry or narrow-band reflectance spectroscopy. Currently available measuring devices are(More)
The body image concern (BIC) continuum ranges from a healthy and positive body image, to clinical diagnoses of abnormal body image, like body dysmorphic disorder (BDD). BDD and non-clinical, yet high-BIC participants have demonstrated a local visual processing bias, characterised by reduced inversion effects. To examine whether this bias is a potential(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to measure expired air temperature under cool- and hot-humid environmental conditions at rest and during prolonged exercise to: (1) establish if significant increases in body core temperature affected expired air temperature, and (2) to determine if the temperature setting for heating the pneumotachometer in an(More)
