Simulated microgravity, psychic stress, and immune cells in men: observations during 120-day 6 degrees HDT.

Abstract

Because 6 degrees head-down tilt (HDT) is an established method to mimic low gravity on earth, the aim of the present study was to determine the effects of 120-day HDT on psychic stress and peripheral blood immune cells in six healthy male volunteers. Psychological state was assessed by a current stress test, and cortisol was measured in saliva. During HDT… (More)
