Abstract : A 1968-1973 study was made of a factor common to sensory and perceptual deprivation, isolation, and confinement: a stress to the subject. Subjects indicate this influence by low tolerance for the condition, self-report, and by physiology change. Stress is also common to many military systems. The investigation was concerned with the evaluation of special training methods and additional experiences in the reduction of stress or in the more efficient adjustment to stress. The final report is composed of the summary of findings in six subject fields of experimentation. (Modified author abstract)
