Diminishing Cognitive Capacities in an Ever Hotter World

Objective:
Modeling and evaluating a series of power-law descriptions for boundary conditions of undiminished cognitive capacities under thermal stress.

Background:
Thermal stress degrades cognition, but precisely which components are affected, and to what degree, has yet to be fully determined. With increasing global temperatures, this need is becoming urgent. Power-law distributions have proven their utility in describing differing natural mechanisms, including certain orders of human performance, but never as a rationalization of stress-altered states of attention.
