Human Adaptation to Isolated and Confined Environments Executive Summary The study was conducted over a seven month period in a winter Antarctic isolated and confined environment (ICE). Physiological and psychological data was collected several times a . Aim 1: To summarize available evidence of psychological and behavioral symptoms experienced in isolated, confined, extreme (ICE) environments and exploration spaceflight based on comprehensive literature reviews and interviews with subject matter experts.

How human beings have adapted to a wide range of stressful environments - extreme temperatures, solar radiation, high altitudes, and nutritional stress - has been the subject of much research in recent years by psychologists, biologists, and physical anthropologists. Here for the first time Dr. Frisancho presents in a single volume knowledge on human adaptation that has previously been widely 3/5(2).   The seasonal variations of psychological reactions in isolated and confined environments have been studied and theorized in terms of the third-quarter phenomenon; the third quarter of the isolation period is the moment when the most discomfort is reported by the ing to Rivolier's comparative study, this article examines the manifestations of the Cited by:

Although competent performance, good mental health, and cooperative teamwork are crucial for survival and mission success in many ICE environments, past research has focused more on technology, physical safety, and medical support than on psychological adaptation (Manzey, ).Cited by: 1.
