Abstract : A study to determine the effect of intermittent periods of positive acceleration (+Gz) on human physiology and cognitive performance was accomplished at the Naval Air Warfare Center (NAWO) human-use centrifuge. This report discusses the materials and methods utilized to obtain various physiologic measures during this study: electroencephalogram (EEG); electrooculogram (EOG); electromyogram (EMG); infrared plethysmography (lRP); electrocardiogram (ECG); and respiration rate (RM). The methods discussed herein are specific to the NAWO centrifuge and may serve as a guide for future research.
