||Psychological reactions during polar expeditions and isolation in hyperbaric chambers
||Mar. 1996, Vol.67, No.3, p.227-234. 27 ref.
||Psychological data from environments that are considered as analogous to space were collected from 67 subjects: 18 in hyperbaric chambers, 15 in polar expeditions, and 34 on Arctic stations. Psychological reactions to the environments were assessed by a questionnaire at weekly intervals. Reactions followed patterns that were specific to the type of environment and were independent of the duration of isolation. Certain personalities showed superior adaptation in hyperbaric chambers. The data suggest that while no one model covers all aspects of the space environment, these terrestrial settings may be considered as models for different aspects of life in space.
