Mental Thermoregulation: Affective and Cognitive Pathways For Non-Physical Temperature Regulation

Reliance on emotions (cognitions) can function as a warming (cooling) process and hence individuals are nonconsciously induced into altering their decision-making style according to their thermoregulatory objectives. The mere use of cognitive versus affective pathways alters not just an individual’s perceived temperature, but leads to changes in actual temperature.
