Auditory and Vestibular Issues Related to Human Spaceflight
Author and Affiliation:
Danielson, Richard W.(National Space Biomedical Research Inst., Houston, TX, United States)
Wood, Scott J.(Universities Space Research Association, Houston, TX, United States)
Abstract: Human spaceflight provides unique opportunities to study human vestibular and auditory systems. This session will discuss 1) vestibular adaptive processes reflected by pronounced perceptual and motor coordination problems during, and after, space missions; 2) vestibular diagnostic and rehabilitative techniques (used to promote recovery after living in altered gravity environments) that may be relevant to treatment of vestibular disorders on earth; and 3) unique acoustical challenges to hearing loss prevention and crew performance during spaceflight missions.
