||Preliminary analysis of sensory disturbances and behavioural modifications of astronauts in space
||Feb. 1993, Vol.64, No.2, p.146-152. 22 ref.
||Behavioural modifications of astronauts over time spent in microgravity conditions were investigated according to an ethological approach based on video recordings during the Spacelab-1 mission. The method consisted of a description and quantification of motor activity of a subject (movement and orientation) while performing working tasks. The data were correlated with the findings of physiological experiments performed during the same spaceflight. Results revealed an increase in frequencies of certain motor outputs which favoured several specific sensory inputs. Behavioural interpretations are discussed in the light of sensorimotor interactions and cognitive events.
