Abstract : The report describes a small (5 ft. i.d.) hyperbaric chamber together with associated features designed for the purpose of studying primate behavioral and physiological capacities. The chamber is rated for work at pressures equivalent to 2000 FSW and can be utilized for extended studies of performance under saturation conditions. Basic functions of chamber operation and gas control are automated and can be placed under programmed control of a computer (LINC-8). Up to five gases may be used simultaneously. Apparatus assembled for the analysis of neuromuscular control and of cardiovascular responses under hyperbaric stress is described. (Author)
