A major physical limitation affecting pilots is G-force (+Gz, head-to-foot inertial load) induced loss of consciousness. Previous studies have shown that +Gz produces qualitatively similar effects on human and rat EEG activity. The present study sought to quantitatively correlate changes in rat EEG activity with increasing +Gz levels. A frontal-parietal… CONTINUE READING
