NASA Experiments fulfilled by the Russian cosmonaut in the frames of the annual medical program

Experiment Fine Motor Skills


Objective:

Detailed systematic study of the efficiency of precision movements' fulfilment at different stages of weightlessness adaptation, and study of the efficiency of long stay in weightlessness, and also sensor-motor functions' recovery after returning to terrestrial gravity.

Tasks:

  • clarification of weightlessness long-term effect influence on precision movements' fulfilment;
  • clarification of gravity level changes influence on precision movements fulfilment.

Used science hardware:

  • iPad plotting device with the experiment software (the experiment software provides for the fulfilment of four assignment modules for checking reaction's rate and precision. The tasks include: touching of multidirectional moving object; object moving on the screen; outlining along the perimeter of various geometrical figures; figures' rotation on the screen).

Expected Results:

Experimental data concerning influence of the long stay in weightlessness on sensor-motor human function.
