Details

Spaceflight is known to include the risk for physiological deconditioning
as well as mental impairments, endangering mission safety and success. While
Space science primarily focussed on physical health in the past, mental health
(i.e. cognitive performance and affective state) was widely neglected. Today, not
only in Space but also exercise science, the promotion of exercise for mental health
is on the rise. This chapter is dedicated to review the known cognitive and affective
deficits in relation to spaceflight. It aims to provide information about the underlying
neurophysiological mechanisms, thus discussing the effect and application of
exercise as a countermeasure, and to illustrate the contribution of Space science to
mental health for our society.
