The paper deals with the psychological and physiological mechanisms characterizing the behavioral patterns of a pilot under emergency situations. In a regular flight, the most important psychic regulator is a target-image and predicting of an assigned task performance serves as the mechanism of its implementation. In non-routine situation, the regulation(More)
The purpose of the study was to explore the possibility of training subjects on how to work as operators and to perform simultaneously anti-G manoeuvres. It was experimentally demonstrated that such skills are required to increase operator's efficacy when exposed to sustained +Gz acceleration. The results can be used in psychological training of operators(More)
Changes in operator's sensorimotor activity and their effect on the control of a dynamic object after short-term exposure to simulated hypogravity were investigated. Hypogravity effects were simulated by a 6-day head-down tilt (-10 degrees) study and a 1-day water immersion study. Changes in the structure of actions seen after study (greater use of(More)
The applicability of brain evoked potentials to the detection of pilot fatigue was investigated in simulation studies. During landing that followed a 10-hour flight acoustic evoked potentials (AEP) to sound stimuli (clicks), that were indifferent and irrelevant for pilots in terms of their professional work, were recorded. In averaged AEPs, the components(More)
It has been demonstrated by centrifugation studies that from the psychological point of view operator's activities when exposed to acceleration are complex and require continuous mental regulation of the health state. During exposure to acceleration it is important to develop in the operator a specific mental property--the skill to distribute attention(More)
Visual monitoring of flight parameters in a maneuvering flight simulated by a pilot trainer was investigated. Eye movements were recorded using a Japanese NAC cinecamera. It was concluded that visual monitoring and attention concentration included chained routes of predicted sequence which was determined by current events throughout the flight. The most(More)
The performance of a suited operator was studied. The experiments were carried out in a trainer consisting of a cockpit and electronic model of the plane attitude realized by an Electron analogue computer. The experiments showed that a special suit may decrease the performance. The main cause for that is that under positive pressure the influx of afferent(More)
Emotional reactions of pilots to a real emergency were studied during simulations of critical and dangerous situations. The vague information on the situation was shown to be the most important emotional factor in such a case. The data have been obtained indicating that with lacking information the level of emotional stress depends on the mental assessment(More)
