Researchers have found that nostalgia can make people warmer when exposed to colder temperatures.

They believe a cross-over in the brain within the region involved in feelings is key to how a body feels.

The researchers from Southampton University worked in collaboration with Sun Yat-Sen University and Tilberg University, conducting five experiments into the link between sentiment and perception of temperature.

One of the experiments involved volunteers keeping an account of their nostalgic feelings over thirty days. It found that people were more nostalgic on colder days.

This means that listening to old music or recalling past events can literally leave people with a warm glow and make it easier to withstand cold temperatures, making the body feel physically warmer.

Fans of nostalgia themselves, 8 Ball stock a wide range of vintage t shirts inspired by retro TV, film, video games and music. Classic arcade games such as Space Invaders, Breakout and Arkanoid have all received the t shirt treatment as well as beloved films such as Terminator, Back to the Future and Top Gun.
