Task Determine & Validate CNS/BMed/SM (CBS) relevant operational measures for integrated POLs and identify Research Measures for EM missions
Last Published:  07/31/19 10:05:33 AM (Central)
Short Title: CBS Operational Measures Ground Validation: Perfx POLs
Responsible HRP Element: Human Factors and Behavioral Performance
Collaborating Org(s):
Human Health Countermeasures (HHC) Element
Other:
Space Radiation (SR) Element
Funding Status: Planned-Funded - Task expected to be within budget
Procurement Mechanism(s):
Directed
Aims:
Use recommended CBS human performance measures and validate in appropriate ground analogues for future use in exploration class missions, assessing synergistic effects of integrated measures. For example, cognitive performance would be considered a measure of operational performance and we need to characterize both the parsed out and the combined, synergistic effect related to types of stressors.

RiskRisk of Acute (In-flight) and Late Central Nervous System Effects from Radiation Exposure
GapCBS-CNS - 1: Are there significant adverse changes in CNS performance in the context and time scale of spaceflight operations? If so, how is significance defined, and which neuropsychological domains are affected? Is there a significant probability that space radiation exposure would result in adverse changes? What are the pathways and mechanisms of change?
GapCBS-CNS - 2: Does space radiation exposure elicit key events in adverse outcome pathways associated with neurological diseases? What are the key events or hallmarks, their time sequence and their associated biomarkers (in-flight or post-flight)?
GapCBS-CNS - 3: How does individual susceptibility including hereditary pre-disposition (e.g. Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, apoE allele) and prior CNS injury (e.g. concussion, chronic inflammation or other) alter significant CNS risks? Does individual susceptibility modify possible threshold doses for these risks in a significant way?
GapCBS-CNS - 8: Are there significant CNS risks from combined space radiation and other physiological or space flight factors, e.g., psychological (isolation and confinement), altered gravity (micro-gravity), stress, sleep deficiency, altered circadian rhythms, hypercapnea, altered immune, endocrine and metabolic function, or other?

RiskRisk of Adverse Cognitive or Behavioral Conditions and Psychiatric Disorders
GapCBS-BMed2: We need to identify and validate measures to monitor behavioral health and performance during exploration class missions to determine acceptable thresholds for these measures.
GapCBS-BMed3: We need to identify and quantify the key threats to and promoters of mission relevant behavioral health and performance during autonomous, long duration and/or long distance exploration missions.

GapCBS-SM2.1: Determine the changes in sensorimotor function over the course of a mission and during recovery after landing.
GapCBS-SM7.1: Determine if there are decrements in performance on functional tasks after long-duration spaceflight. Determine how changes in physiological function, exercise activity, and/or clinical data account for these decrements.
GapCBS-SM24: Determine if the individual capacity to produce adaptive change (rate and extent) in sensorimotor function to transitions in gravitational environments can be predicted with preflight tests of sensorimotor adaptability.
GapCBS-SM28: Develop a sensorimotor countermeasure system integrated with current exercise modalities to mitigate performance decrements during and after spaceflight.
