Abstract:

The report presents experiences obtained with the use of 8-channel telemetry systems in continuous simultaneous monitoring of six physiological functions EEG, EKD, respiratory rate, body temperature, skin temperature, BSR in one or two subjects during isolation experiments of two to three weeks duration. The studies were performed to determine the extent of internal desynchronization in free running circadian cycles of physiological functions, under conditions of confinement in a constant environment such as those encountered in spaceflights and underwater exploration.
