Twenty-four professional divers were put through a series of electroencephalographic (EEG) and psychometric tests at the surface and at 180 m after a fast compression (15 min) in an attempt to determine their susceptibility to high-pressure nervous syndrome (HPNS). The subjects were classified according to the EEG changes between the surface and 180 m: group 0, less than 10% increase in theta-band activity in the anterior region of the scalp; group 1, between 10 and 100% increase in theta… CONTINUE READING
