Abstract:

In this paper, we summarize studies that used ANAM tests to assess the effects of environmental stressors. The findings document performance changes resulting from conditions relevant to military operational medicine. These conditions included radiation exposure, toxins, high altitude, undersea conditions, Marine basic training, advanced military training, and fatigue. The results of these studies demonstrate that ANAM detects cognitive changes in extreme environments.
