The objectives of the research are to test the hypothesis that microgravity induces plastic alteration of the vestibulo-cardiovascular reflex, and if vestibular-mediated pressor response is impaired after space flight, then orthostatic hypotension occurs. To examine this, contribution of the vestibulo-cardiovascular reflex in controlling AP upon HUT is examined before and after space flight.
This is an international experiment. NASA does not currently have an agreement with international space partners to archive their data in the LSDA.
