Neurogravity (AGBRESA)

Another supposable countermeasure against undesirable effects of microgravity is the application of short bouts of Artificial Gravity (AG). While centrifugation could be effective in preventing bone and muscle loss and counteracting the detrimental effects of weightlessness on circulation, little is known about immediate and prolonged effects of AG on cognitive performance. This research proposal aims at clarifying the beneficial as well as the adverse effects of centrifugation on cognitive abilities in a ground based space analog condition.
