Behavior and performance
Species Studied
Scientific Name: Homo sapiens Species: Human

On the ground, crewmembers exhibit a high level of professional skill, ability to perform logical and spatial tasks, and the ability to develop adaptive biological control skills. In space, however, microgravity causes a rush of blood to the head which can cause difficulties with tasks that require logic. The objectives of this study were to identify crewmember features used for the assessment of the mental state, and predict and provide a correction in the quality of task performance.
