Abstract
This was the second of two studies undertaken to compare the thermoregulatory responses to cold between females and males. Previously, we found that gender-related corrections to prediction models of thermoregulation in the cold are not required provided that the models take body fatness into account. In the persent study, we compare the shivering characteristics between females and males exposed to a less stressful cold condition. Specifically, the onset of shivering and the contribution of various muscle groups to overall shivering heat production are examined.
