Is Freezing Contagious?

Is Freezing Contagious?

Scientists from the University of Sussex asked test subjects to watch a video sequence in which an actor dips his hands into cold water. The temperature of the hands of those watching then dropped by 0.2 degrees Celsius – a small but statistically significant amount. The phenomenon is known as ‘temperature contagion’. Neuroscientist Neil Harrison believes it occurs as a result of the human ability to feel empathy towards others. “The experiment shows that humans do not only experience empathy on a psychological level, but that the body also has a direct physical reaction.”
