The ALTEA project studies the problems related to possible functional damage to the Central Nervous System (CNS) due to particle radiation in space environment. The project is a large international and multi-disciplinary collaboration. The ALTEA instrumentation is an helmet-shaped multi-sensor device that will measure concurrently the dynamics of the functional status of the visual system and the passage of each particle through the brain within a pre-determined energy window. ALTEA is… CONTINUE READING
