Abstract

The purpose of this study is to identify the effects of exercises intensity on facial thermoregulation and to evaluate the relationships between changes in men’s facial temperature and changes in affect that occur during muscular exercise. Moreover, a special attention has been paid on the possible relationship between the skin facial temperature and the heart rate of subjects. Fifty-four male performed a 12 min long session of aerobic exercise at moderate-to-high intensity. IR cartographies were performed using an IR camera. Pleasure and displeasure levels were assessed repeatedly over the exercise session.
