Hypothermia and hyperthermia have been shown to adversely affect memory retention in humans and animals. The effect of heat combined with humidity has not been tested. The authors evaluated the impact of relative humidity and temperature on learning and memory in mice by using a plus-maze and found that the combination of high temperature and high humidity appeared to impair memory.
