Sweating in humans is critical for appropriate thermoregulation during exercise and/or exposure to warm environmental temperatures. In addition to thermal controllers of sweating, a number of non-thermal thennal factors modulate the sweating response. This review summarizes the primary non-thermal neural modifiers of sweating in humans.
