Neurocognitive Assessment (WinSCAT) (Cognitive Assessment Tool for Windows) (Flight Analog) (MR085G)
Principal Investigator
Research Area:
Behavior and performance
Species Studied
Scientific Name: Homo sapiens Species: Human

The objective of the Spaceflight Cognitive Assessment Tool for Windows (WinSCAT) test was to measure cognition before, during, and after exposure to long duration bed rest to assess the cognitive effects of simulated microgravity induced by 6° head-down tilt.
