A Model of the Controller Responses of the Human Temperature Regulating System to Changes in Air Temperature

"A Model of the Controller Responses of the Human Temperature Regulating System to Changes in Air Temperature," Mathematical and Computer Modelling, Vol. 12 (1989), 277-288 (with J.L. Ringuest and M. Neghabat). The objective of this study is to develop models of the controller mechanism of the human temperature regulating system. The emphasis of this research is on controller response to changes in air temperature. The controller responses are: changes in metabolic heat production; changes in evaporative heat loss; and alterations in surface blood flow. Time series modeling procedures are used to develop both univariate and transfer function models for metabolic heat production and evaporative heat loss. Because of the nature of the available data for surface blood flow, time series models are not developed for this controller response.
