Student working on a research project.

Blood Pressure During Heat Stress And Face Cooling

Cooling the forehead initiates the mammalian dive reflex in humans. This reflex causes an increase in blood pressure. We are trying to determine if cooling the forehead during whole body heat stress in humans can still elicit the dive reflex and evoke increases in blood pressure.
