Living and Working in Space; IAA Man in Space Symposium, 9th, Cologne, Federal Republic of Germany, June 17-21, 1991, Selection of PapersThe present symposium on living and working in space encompasses the physiological responses of humans in space and biomedical support for the conditions associated with space travel. Specific physiological issues addressed include cerebral and sensorimotor functions, effects on the cardiovascular and respiratory system, musculoskeletal system, body fluid, hormones and electrolytes, and some orthostatic hypotension mechanisms as countermeasures. The biomedical support techniques examined include selection training, and care, teleoperation and artificial intelligence, robotic automation, bioregenerative life support, and toxic hazard risks in space habitats. Also addressed are determinants of orientation in microgravity, the hormonal control of body fluid metabolism, integrated human-machine intelligence in space machines, and material flow estimation in CELSS.
