Experimentally, the effects of environmental conditions upon human capabilities have been studied most often through the imposition of a single stressor in isolation. Although it seems to be a common belief that thermal comfort can be influenced by concomitant stimulation of non-tactile sensorial modalities, few studies have succeeded in delineating non-tactile stimulations, which interact with thermal sensation and thermal comfort. Here we briefly overview neurophysiological and behavioural findings in multisensory influences on thermal sensation and thermal comfort.
