As plans move ahead to launch long-term space missions, tracking the astronauts’ wellbeing over long periods becomes paramount. In particular, there is a critical need to supervise the brain functions and cognitive functions of people staying under conditions of microgravity for prolonged periods. This experiment is intended to monitor Eytan Stibbe’s brain activity on Earth (before and after and) during his stay at the Space Station while at rest and while performing various cognitive functions. EEG (electroencephalography) tests will be conducted by a new EEG system developed by the Brain.Space Company. These are going to be high-resolution tests based on dry sensors, which automatically self-adapt to the patient’s head.
Data collected will be analyzed using a range of advanced cerebral indices by Dr. Oren Shriki’s laboratory at the Ben Gurion University in the Negev.
