The hunting reaction was compared among Caucasians and Japanese in 0, 5, 10, and 15 C cold water baths. Japanese subjects showed an earlier onset of vasodilation, a higher temperature at the onset of the hunting reaction, and a warmer average skin temperature during immersion. The most significant differences were noted in the 5 C bath. An attempt was made to explain the different pattern of the hunting reaction found to occur in the Japanese subjects living either in Japan or the United States.

    Since human thermoregulation at rest is altered by cold exposure, it was hypothesized that physical training under cold conditions would alter thermoregulation. Three groups (n = 8) of male subjects (mean age 24.3 ± 0.9 years) were evaluated: group T (interval training at 21°C), group CT...
