Abstract

The psychological condition of astronauts is an important factor for ensuring mission success in limited space. Head-down tilting bed rest is a well-accepted method by which to simulate an acute stage of human adaptation to the weightless state in space flight. In our previous studies, the enhancement of depressive and neurotic levels occurred during a 20-day horizontal bed rest. In this study, we attempted to examine the depressive and neurotic levels, the mood status, and behavioral tendency of the subjects and to analyze the changes of 24-hour urinary excretion of 17-hydroxycorticosteroid-glucronides (17-OHCS) for an indicator of changes in the endocrine system due to physical and psychological stress during a 20-day 6-degrees head-down tilting bed rest (BR).
