Title Motivation to behave during passive heat stress
Description The purpose of this study is to quantify the motivation to behaviorally thermoregulate when subjected to passive heat stress environments.

Participants will be asked to complete 3 study visits

Study visits will be at the University at Buffalo, South Campus

Objective When exposed to an uncomfortable environment, individuals will initiate thermoregulatory behavior to become more comfortable. This behavior in resting humans is mediated by changes in skin temperature, as a means to prevent a change in core temperature. Motivation to initiate a behavior is a key determinant underlying the decision making process. However, the motivation to behaviorally thermoregulate has never been quantified in humans.
