Effects of Proton and Combined Proton and (56)Fe Radiation on the Hippocampus.

Abstract

The space radiation environment contains protons and (56)Fe, which could pose a significant hazard to space flight crews during and after missions. The space environment involves complex radiation exposures, thus, the effects of a dose of protons might be modulated by a dose of heavy-ion radiation. The brain, and particularly the hippocampus, may be… (More)
