The system MONIMIR has been developed to study the coordination of eye, head and arm movements as well as spinal reflexes in microgravity and was used during three spaceflights on board of the station MIR. The following investigations in the course of the experiment MONIMIR were performed: (1) slow head movements in three planes, (2.3) fast pointing(More)
In 20 healthy subjects (10 males and 10 females) aged between 24 and 45, the conduction velocity (CV) of excitation along muscle fibers was measured in m. biceps brachii muscle using level averaging of interference electromyograms (EMGs) recorded by branched and monopolar surface electrodes. The measured CV, recorded with both monopolar and branched(More)
4 simple tests to investigate physiological tremors in different load conditions on the musculo-skeletal system have been developed with regard to the Austromir space missions. Some new results on normal tremors from the space experiments as well as from ground studies using these tests are discussed. It is proposed to introduce these experimental methods(More)
