Abstract

Results of investigation of spontaneous and induced by vertical linear and sinusoid optokinetic stimulation oculomotor reactions in short- and long-term space missions are reported. Adaptation to microgravity was shown to be associated with rearrangement in sensory interactions even on a background of good subjective well-being and absence of abnormal autonomous nervous reactions. In the early period of adaptation to microgravity records were made of modified spontaneous oculomotor activity (spontaneous vertical nystagmus) and vertical optokinetic nystagmus (VOKN) including alterations in amplitude and VOKN amplification coefficient.
