Human brown adipose tissue activity assessed via positron emission tomography/computed tomography is inversely associated with environmental temperatureGeorgakopoulos, A; Koutsikos, J; Krase, A; Nintou, E; Metaxas, M; Athanasiou, K; Georgoulias, P; Gkiata, P; Koutedakis, Y; Dinas, P; et al. (Springer, 2018-10)Introduction: Cold exposure increases brown adipose tissue (BAT) activity, which may lead to increased resting energy expenditure (REE) with beneficial effects on body composition. However, evidence on the impact of normal daily living environmental temperature (Tenv) on BAT activity is limited. In this study, we examined the impact of Tenv on BAT activity of healthy men.
