This study extends earlier findings of poorly facilitated postexercise heat loss during the winter in seasonal affective disorder (SAD). While depressed in the winter, 19 SAD subjects exhibited a significantly impaired postexercise heat loss relative to 10 control subjects. During the summer while euthymic, SAD subjects did not significantly differ from control subjects in postexercise heat loss. Since thermoregulatory heat loss is a highly dopamine-dependent process, these results support earlier findings of poorly facilitated dopamine availability in SAD during the winter and suggest a centrally mediated effect of light in SAD.
