Abstract:

The magnetosphere is an intrinsic component of the Earth environment, and travel beyond this sphere will expose man to near absence of a magnetic field. The present study is a continuation of a previous investigation of the physiological and psychological effects of prolonged exposure of man to low intensity magnetic fields. In support of previous findings, a significant gradual decrease of the scotopic flicker fusion threshold was observed from which the subjects recovered after exposure. Problems of life in a magnetic field-free environment are discussed.
