Ashton Graybiel Spatial Orientation Laboratory

All training facilities are provided by the Ashton Graybiel Spatial Orientation Laboratory at Brandeis University. Their staff has over 30-years of experience in studying human factors, spatial orientation, sensorimotor adaptation, and motion sickness in space flight and parabolic flight, as well as in a variety of force field environments including high G and G transitions, zero G, rotation/artificial gravity, and virtual/simulator environments. The Graybiel Laboratory's experimental program is designed to advance our effort to develop a predictive model of human vestibular orientation, posture stabilization, and neural control of movement. Novel experiments are performed to further our understanding of human motor control. By researching and examining a broad spectrum of topics we can gain valuable knowledge and help solve practical problems in aeronautics, astronautics, medicine, occupational therapy and other fields.
