The Space Medicine Innovations Laboratory is a multidisciplinary research lab with a global reach.
The lab’s current areas of research are:
• Assessing brain function using the brain’s auditory system in people with various conditions (HIV, Zika, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s).
• Developing new audiological tests for use both in the US and the developing world.
• Testing and developing self-directed, autonomous, interactive-media-based behavioral health tools and virtual reality for use in isolated and confined environments (e.g. Antarctic stations) and other settings.
• Use of hyperbaric oxygen for research and clinical applications.
• Other technology/science projects for NASA/Department of Defense – Previous areas of interest have included motion sickness, space-related bone loss, visual changes in astronauts, noise-induced hearing loss.
