Broadcast 1464 (Special Edition)

Guests: Dr. Steven Moore, Dr. Valentina Dilda. Topic: Electrical trickery on the brain to induce realistic spaceflight effects and why this is so important. Please note that you are invited to comment, ask questions, and rate this program on the new Space Show blog, http://thespaceshow.wordpress.com. We welcomed Dr. Steven Moore and Dr. Valentina Dilda, researchers with the National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI) regarding their Galvanic vestibular stimulation research on the brain to induce realistic spaceflight effects.

Broadcast 1258 (Special Edition)

uests: Dr. Ted Bateman, Dr. Jeff Willey. Topics: Microgravity environment of space and bone loss in astronauts due to radiation. Our guests for today, Dr. Ted Bateman and Dr. Jeff Willey, both of Clemson University, are involved in bone loss studies at the radiation levels astronauts will probably encounter on long duration spaceflights, space settlement, and possibly even on a flight to Mars. Their research flows from a project funded by the National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI) in Houston.

Broadcast 1113 (Special Edition)

Guests: Dr. Tom Jones, Dr. Charles Oman, Ron Small. Topics: Spatial disorientation, space motion sickness, vertigo, solutions. Our guests today, Dr. Jones, Dr. Oman, and Ron Small, are involved in a research project with the National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI) to assist pilots in real-time to overcome spatial disorientation for aviation and space. We also talked about motion sickness, particularly space motion sickness, and ways to combat it. Physiology plays a big part in both disorientation and motion sickness, so you will want to hear what our guests had to say.

Broadcast 1052 (Special Edition)

Guests: Dr. James Cartreine, Dr. Jay Buckey, and Dr. Raphael Rose were the guests for this special Space Show program focusing on the NSBRI "Self-Guided Depression Treatment on Long-Duration Spaceflights." We began this discussion with our guests explaining the purpose and mechanics of the Self-Guided Depression Treatment computer program for use by the astronauts. Along with listener questions, we went into detail about this self-help program which will complete testing and studies by mid-2009 and then be put into service by the space program and possibly into general public distribution.
