This task will be a research study to develop and test non-pharmacological treatments for the cognitive or behavioral decrement of greatest concern to the success of a long-duration exploration class mission.

As a component fo the study, recommend examining potential team-level responses to adverse behavioral events in spaceflight. Researchers should consider generalizable findings from the broader literature and spaceflight-like environments (e.g., military units). Address how teams may act as a countermeasure to negative impacts from those events in long-duration spaceflight missions, looking at both team and individual health and performance, and recommend methods to train and reinforce adaptive team responses to these types of events.
