PSYCHOLOGISTS ARRIVE IN SPACE TO ANALYSE PSYCHOSOCIAL FACTORS

Written on October 15, 2009 by PsychIE Author in Uncategorized

Many studies have been made about space but rarely have missions taken into account the important role played by psychosocial factors as one of the fundamental limitations to the success of research.

For this reason, the European Space Agency (ESA) has decided to finance the first European research team (thanks to an agreement with the University of Cadiz), made up of five psychologists and psychiatrist, who will be in charge  of studying psychosocial factors and neurobehaviours of the space mission crews.

How idea arose, its creation, the explanation of what these psychosocial factors are, as well as their prevention and the protection variables involved, etc, are many of the questions we can ask while listening to the news: you can find the answer in the interview published by COP: “The psychosocial factors in manned space missions-interview with Gabriel González de la Torre”.
