[Research News] How Does Reduced Gravity Affect Astronauts’ Muscles and Nerve Responses?

Updated Jul. 20, 2022
OHIRA Yoshinobu, Visiting Professor of the Organization for Research Initiatives and Development, Doshisha University, and his colleagues presented a paper suggesting effective countermeasures against neuromuscular problems caused by gravitational unloading, or during long term space missions. This paper was written in response to an invitation to a special issue commemorating the first human landing on the Moon.
