This book is about a hot debate that has divided the community of temperature physiologists for the last fifteen years: the question of human selective brain cooling. It is well accepted that in hyperthermic animals the brain is kept at a lower temperature than the rest of the body, a function called "selective brain cooling." However, whether the human species possess this function is still controversial. This point is not trivial because the existence of selective brain cooling in humans would entail important repercussions in the fields of medicine, sport, as well as all other human activities in hot environments. This book takes a firm stand in favor of human selective brain cooling.
