|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

|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.
