SCIENTIFIC EQUIPMENT USED:
- AST spectrometer
to measure angle, charge and energy properties
of heavy ions (nuclei) in cosmic radiation.
- Halley package (portable electroencephalograph)
to support pick-up, amplification, and analog-to-digital
conversion of electrophysiological signals (up to
16 channels), recording and storing data on PCMCIA
- Halley device
- event indicator
- headpiece with electroencephalograph
- a set of electrodes
- PCMCIA memory cards
- MC-60 mini-cassettes for dictaphone
To study the mechanisms of effects of heavy charged
particles in cosmic radiation and the phosphenes (light
flashes) that they create on visual analyzers and
central nervous system of the cosmonaut and his capacities
as an operator in space flight environment.
- radiology studies in the field of space particle
- electrophysiology studies of the level of total
effects of space flight on the functional state
of the cosmonaut's central nervous system.
Obtaining the data on the radiation safety of cosmonauts
during long-duration and long-range missions, as well
as the dynamics of their central nervous system functional
state and changes in the level of their capacity as
operators under these conditions. Determining the
level of radiation protection in working compartments
of ISS RS more precisely.
