Exercise Physiology, Cognitive Function, and Physiologic Alterations in Extreme Conditions

Call for Papers

Exercise Physiology is a heterogeneous field of study that includes a broad array of disciplines evaluating how various stressors act upon the human. These stressors of environmental physiology may range between extreme heat, cold, and hypoxic conditions and how these extremes change the individuals’ thermal, metabolic, and cognitive abilities during rest, exercise, and dehydration. Knowledge and understanding of exercise in these conditions will enhance our abilities to work in these ambients, navigate the wilderness, and aid the military personnel as they are deployed to high altitudes and need to be equipped with the proper fluids, supplements, and ergogenic aids.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to understand exercise physiology in ambient and extreme environmental conditions and evaluating strategies that enhance our ability to treat, compete, and better understand the human condition under these stressors, both physiologic and cognitive. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Recent developments in normobaric hypoxia
  • Advances in dietary supplementation in exercise physiology
  • Role of acute cold exposure and changes in the core in human physiology and changes in cognitive function
  • Heat and dehydration: what should we drink and how do we feel?
  • Exercise changes in cognitive function, mood, sleep, and anxiety
