Vestibular alterations in sensory awareness under conditions typical of spaceflight – in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA) and the German Aerospace Center (DLR)

42_digital_logo_dark_blue_sign_AESA is supporting a collaboration with the DLR (Germany) to investigate the basic influence of gravity to the relation between the organism and the surrounding environment.  In particular, we investigate the influence of gravity on intersensory bodily perception.  Artificial gravity will be delivered using a short arm human centrifuge platform (SAHC) to induce conflicting signals between key sensory information (vestibular, visual, and proprioceptive).
