Thermogenesis during rest and exercise in cold air.

Nine non-cold-acclimated subjects (5 female, 4 male, mean age 22.5 years) were studied to determine whether nonshivering thermogenesis contributes to cold-induced metabolic heat production during rest (50 min standing) and exercise (40 min treadmill walking) in 5 degrees C.
