STRESS, COGNITION, AND HUMAN PERFORMACE

The NASTAR Center

Current Ongoing and Completed Projects:

Pilot Reactions to Unusual Aircraft Attitudes
The goal of this project is to research the effects of anxiety in airline pilots who have never experienced extreme maneuvering in an aircraft.
Training effects on anxiety, arousal, and performance in simulated sub-orbital spaceflight
This study will examine the effect of full versus minimal/no training on subject performance, anxiety and arousal during simulated sub-orbital spaceflight in the ATFS-400 man rated centrifuge.
Tolerance of Centrifuge-Induced G-Force by Disease State
This study will examine the effects of microgravity on individuals with known diseases and medical conditions.
Optical Brain Monitoring using Functional Near Infrared (fNIR) Spectroscopy to Measure Cognitive Workload While Under G
This study seeks to determine the efficacy of using fNIR spectroscopy to measure cognitive workload while under G by testing a group of naive subjects at several standardized mental workload, memory and cognition tasks at various G levels in the ATFS-400.
