||Behavioral health: Integrating research and application in support of exploration missions
||June 2005, Vol.76, No.6, Section II, Suppl., p.B3-B12. 88 ref.
||This article addresses the concept of behavioural health in space, a concept that covers psychological, interpersonal, and cultural adaptation. It provides an overview of the rationale and findings of a NASA-funded workshop entitled "New directions in behavioural health: Integrating research and application", held at the University of California, Davis, USA, on 2-3 December 2003. The purpose of the workshop was to promote fruitful dialogue between researchers and operational personnel in the interests of expanding our understanding of behavioural health on future space exploration missions. Topics discussed include the critical role of behavioural health in space, behaviour and performance, research strategies and obstacles to progress in space-related behavioural health research and application.
