Abstract : The primary thrust of this contract was to perform high altitude research on Pikes Peak Colorado (with the sea level phase to be done in Palo Alto) in the summer of 1991. The work was to test the hypothesis that the adreno-sympathetic system mediated many of the adaptations to high altitude, particularly the metabolic changes.
