Researchers reveal how astronauts can avoid neuromuscular problems that occur as a result of an extended space trip.
The brain's structural connectivity alters as a result of long-duration space missions, a new study reports. The most significant changes were identified in white matter tracts, including the sensorimotor tract.
Astronauts do not feel dizzy or faint during post-flight exercise, so long as they participate in certain types of exercise in space and receive IV fluids when they return to earth. The findings could have implications for people postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS).
A new study on the International Space Station is being conducted to help researchers understand how the brain changes in space and develop ways to deal with those changes.
New research reports galactic cosmic rays cause significant damage to the central nervous system and results in cognitive impairments for astronauts on extended space flights.
