The study aimed to compare thermal sensation in response to a fixed warm stimulus across 31 body locations in resting and active males and females. Twelve males (20.6 ± 1.0 years, 78.1 ± 15.6 kg, 180 ± 8.9 cm, 34.4 ± 5.2 ml kg−1 min−1) and 12 females (20.6 ± 1.4 years, 62.9 ± 5.5 kg, 167 ± 5.7 cm, 36.5 ± 6.6 ml kg−1 min−1) rested in a thermoneutral (22.2 ± 2.2 °C, 35.1 ± 5.8 % RH) room whilst a thermal probe (25 cm2), set at 40 °C was applied in a balanced order to 31 locations across the body… CONTINUE READING
