Discussion areas include modeling and simulation of physiologic, biomechanical and behavioral responses to reduced gravity, radiation, spacecraft environment, planetary environment, extravehicular activity, crew dynamics, ergonomics, work-load, and countermeasure prescriptions (exercise and non-exercise).
