Review of NASA’s Biomedical Research Program
study the use of psychophysiological countermeasure implementation, and determine the effects of the spaceflight environment on the kinetics and efficacy of psychopharmacological medications. With the exception of the circadian and neurovestibular systems, countermeasure evaluation and development received little attention in the past.
