The focus of the research in the Aerospace Medicine & Vestibular Research Laboratory (AMVRL) primarily involves the investigation of problems that emanate from exposure of humans to the high and extreme altitude, acceleration and spatial disorientation environment.
We are studying the ability to influence and enhance spatial orientation by use of galvanic vestibular stimulation (GVS). This work also encompasses the mitigation of motion and simulator sickness, hence is of broader relevance in flight simulation.
We are investigating and developing strategies to enhance human health and performance in the aerospace environment.
