To prevent the participants of parabolic flights from nausea they are optionally treated with subcutaneously injected antiemetic scopolamine. The range of side effects of this substance include reductions of the α-2 frequency band. Previous studies, however, have given no information as to which generator centers are responsible for this effect. The objective of this study therefore, is to identify the cortex area that may be responsible for this effect. Six participants were subcutaneously… CONTINUE READING
