The Effects of Cold on Human Cognitive Performance - Implications for Design

  title={The Effects of Cold on Human Cognitive Performance - Implications for Design},
  author={Kendall Hartley and J D Ph}
Many studies have looked at the physiological effects of sub-thermal temperatures and many conclusions are generally understood. However, there exists considerable debate as to whether cold environments affect human cognitive performance within the literature. The purpose of this study was to determine if cold environments affect human information processing. Twenty subjects (10 male and 10 female) participated in this study and were compensated. Subjects core body temperature (as measured… CONTINUE READING
