In summary, the addition of the research studies conducted in year three of the project solidifies the notion that regular bouts of aerobic exercise affect the physiology of the thermoregulatory system in a phase-dependent manner. Preliminary results from the reaction time data continue to be extremely promising. These data suggest that aerobic exercise may have the potential to enhance neurobehavioral performance, as reflected by simple visual reaction time, particularly at the nadir of the temperature cycle where neurobehavioral deficits are known to be the greatest.
