The article profiles professor Jośe E. P. W. Bicudo. It states that Bicudo has carried out physiological research on various topics including osmoregulation, cardiac physiology, torpor; however, he is known for the researches on respiration, metabolism, and thermoregulation. It mentions that he was affiliated at the University of São Paulo for his teaching profession. It adds that he had received many research grants, travel awards, and invitations for international conferences.

    The thermal ecology of the endemic lizard Liolaemus eleodori was studied at the San Guillermo National Park, Province of San Juan, Argentina. Data were collected during December 2004 and February 2005. Cloacal (Tc), substrate (Ts) and air (Ta) temperatures were registered using a quick reading...

    Purpose: Individuals exposed to total sleep deprivation may experience an increased risk of impaired thermoregulation and physiological strain during prolonged physical activity in the heat. However, little is known of the impact of more relevant partial sleep deprivation (PSD). This randomized...

    The article discusses the discovery of so-called brown fat that is said to burn energy rather than store it. The human body reportedly expends energy via brown fat to stay warm in cold environments. Research studies are reported in the April 2009 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine....

    Background Exercise increases core body temperature (Tc), which is necessary to optimise physiological processes. However, excessive increase in Tc may impair performance and places participants at risk for the development of heat-related illnesses. Cooling is an effective strategy to attenuate...
