Abstract:

The report summarizes 16 articles which concentrate heavily on the isolated and combined effects of acceleration and radiation on mammals. Titles are as follows Effect of radial accelerations on brain temperature Effect of centrifugation on otolith function Effect of vibration on cerebrospinal reflexes Effect of vertical vibration and noise on conditioned reflexes Changes in cerebral bioelectricity and oxygen metabolism Effect of vibration and analyzer exclusion on brain metabolism Cerebral oxygen metabolism, bioelectricity, and conditioned reflex activity during vibration Respiratory changes during vibration X-ray effect on cerebral venous flow Comparative effect of neutron, proton, and gamma irradiation 300 rad Comparative effect of neutron and gamma irradiation 25 rad Comparative effect of neutron, proton, and gamma irradiation 150 rad Comparative effect of chronic and acute gamma irradiation on nervous activity Effect of prolonged gamma irradiation on vestibular function Combined effects of vibration and chronic irradiation on vestibular function Combined effects of vibration and ionizing radiation on conditioned reflexes.
