Human sleep is sensitive to the individual's environment. The present review examines current knowledge of human sleep patterns under different environments: heat exposure, cold exposure, altitude, high pressure and microgravity in space. Heat exposure has two effects. In people living in temperate conditions, moderate heat loads (hot bath, sauna) prior to sleep provoke a delayed reaction across time (diachronic reaction) whereby slow-wave sleep (SWS) augments in the following night (neurogenic… Expand
Sleep in Extreme Environment
This chapter briefly describes sleep and its impact on health in certain extreme situations in the environment (e.g., space travel, polar regions, mountain climbers at high altitude, deep-sea diversExpand
Ambient heat and human sleep
TLDR
It is projected that climate change will further erode human sleep, producing substantial geographic inequalities, and a pathway through which rising temperatures may globally impact public health is illuminated. Expand
The interrelationship between sleep regulation and thermoregulation.
TLDR
Animals that display daily torpor may be a valuable model to investigate the relationship between sleep and thermoregulation, and may provide the basis to treat sleep disturbances with thermal strategies. Expand
Sleep environments and sleep physiology: A review.
TLDR
The fundamental elements of human sleep are highlighted, highlighting physically active people, such as athletes, and the influence of sleepwear and bedding on sleep thermal microclimates, as well as the research methods that have been and could be used in this field. Expand
Hypothalamic temperature: a key regulator in homeostatic restoration of sleep during chronic cold exposure in rats.
Exposure to cold ambient temperature (Ta) affects sleep-wake (S-W) state. The vigilance states on the other hand influence thermal status of the animals. Simultaneous recording of body temperatureExpand
Sleep quantity and quality during consecutive day heat training with the inclusion of cold-water immersion recovery.
TLDR
Reducing training in the heat duration per day improved sleep latency and sleep quality with no effect on total sleep time, while the addition of CWI has minimal effect on sleep quality or quantity. Expand
Reorganization of Sleep by Temperature in Drosophila Requires Light, the Homeostat, and the Circadian Clock
TLDR
The effect of temperature on sleep reflects coordinated regulation by light, the homeostat, and components of the clock, allowing animals to reorganize sleep patterns in response to high temperature with rough preservation of the total amount of sleep. Expand
Sleep patterns in villagers and urban African volunteers in a humid tropical climate: Influence of accessibility to electric light?
TLDR
Compared to villagers living in electricity-free bush villages, sleep was lighter in the villagers, with more stage 1 and less slow wave sleep (SWS) and Latency to SWS was also shorter, but there were no indications as to whether the observed differences were attributable to the availability of electrical power.

Chapter 6 – Cold Environments
TLDR
Analysis of physiological changes in participants of the ultra-endurance race “Yukon Arctic Ultra” in northern Canada show significant changes in energy expenditure, body composition, as well as sleep and heart rate variability. Expand
Lengthening of the photoperiod influences sleep characteristics before and during total sleep deprivation in rat
TLDR
Fourteen days under long photoperiod (light–dark 16:8) increased non‐rapid eye movements sleep, and decreased sleep rebound related to total sleep deprivation (lower non‐raped eye movements duration and delta power) may create a model of sleep extension for the rat that has been found to favour anabolism in the brain and the periphery.

In this paper, the effects of exercise on human sleep (in temperate, cold, and hot climates) are compared with those of exposure to extreme environments (tropical, polar climates). Exercise has twoExpand
Effect of continuous heat exposure on sleep stages in humans.
TLDR
During exposure to dry heat, the demand for sleep could overcome that of other regulatory functions that are temperature-dependent, and a recovery effect was observed on a number of sleep parameters which were not significantly affected by the preceding exposure to prolonged heat. Expand
Body temperature and sleep architecture in response to a mild cold stress in women
TLDR
Challenges to the thermoregulatory system can be used as a vehicle to systematically alter sleep architecture in humans, and the ability to maintain a sleep state was significantly impaired during the cold stress. Expand
Metabolism and thermoregulation during stages of sleep in humans exposed to heat and cold.
TLDR
The increases in VO2 and the absence of marked changes in vasomotor tone during REM sleep in the cold were unexpected and possibly indicate that REM sleep is not as thermally disruptive in humans as in other mammals. Expand
Thermoregulation, metabolism, and stages of sleep in cold-exposed men.
TLDR
Cold induced increased wakefulness and decreased stage 2 sleep, without significantly affecting other stages of sleep, and unsuppressed REM sleep in association with peripheral vasoconstriction and increased Tty and VO2 in cold-exposed humans, do not signify an inhibition of thermoregulation during this sleep stage as has been observed in other mammals. Expand
The interaction between sleep and thermoregulation in adults and neonates.
TLDR
This procedure may promote and maintain sleep in depressed patients, whose sleep and body temperature rhythms are modified, and homeothermic processes in neonates are maintained or even enhanced during active sleep (AS) when compared to quiet sleep (QS). Expand
Variations in evaporation and body temperatures during sleep in man.
TLDR
The results suggest that the nervous integrative function conditioning the patterns of sleep, conditions also the phasic cyclic changes of thermoregulatory function. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that increased nocturnal core temperature alone may disrupt sleep and support evidence suggesting that the circadian regulation of the sleep/wake cycle may be mediated via core temperature. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that the marked increase in the number of arousals may account for the disparity between the subjective reports and objective measures of sleep disturbance at high altitude. Expand
