Abstract : The report summarizes 16 articles which concentrate heavily on the isolated and combined effects of acceleration and radiation on mammals. Titles are as follows: Effect of radial accelerations on brain temperature; Effect of centrifugation on otolith function; Effect of vibration on cerebrospinal reflexes; Effect of vertical vibration and noise on conditioned reflexes; Changes in cerebral bioelectricity and oxygen metabolism; Effect of vibration and analyzer exclusion on brain metabolism; Cerebral oxygen metabolism, bioelectricity, and conditioned reflex activity during vibration; Respiratory changes during vibration; X-ray effect on cerebral venous flow; Comparative effect of neutron, proton, and gamma irradiation (300 rad); Comparative effect of neutron and gamma irradiation (25 rad); Comparative effect of neutron, proton, and gamma irradiation (150 rad); Comparative effect of chronic and acute gamma irradiation on nervous activity; Effect of prolonged gamma irradiation on vestibular function; Combined effects of vibration and chronic irradiation on vestibular function; Combined effects of vibration and ionizing radiation on conditioned reflexes.
