Physiologic adaptation to space - Space adaptation syndrome
Author and Affiliation:
Vanderploeg, J. M.(NASA Johnson Space Center, Houston, TX, United States)
Abstract: The adaptive changes of the neurovestibular system to microgravity, which result in space motion sickness (SMS), are studied. A list of symptoms, which range from vomiting to drowsiness, is provided. The two patterns of symptom development, rapid and gradual, and the duration of the symptoms are described. The concept of sensory conflict and rearrangements to explain SMS is being investigated.
