Zero G and ICP: Invasive and noninvasive ICP Monitoring of Astronauts on the ISS

  1. To determine whether ICP in space is elevated in comparison to baseline ICP on Earth, and whether ICP after return to Earth differs from baseline values by measuring ICP in astronauts before, during, and after an ISS mission by invasive methods.
  2. To validate noninvasive ICP measurement methods and their correlation with invasive ICP before, during, and after spaceflight, and to quantify their error of measurement.
  3. To determine the correlation of ICP changes to other indicators of VIIP by collecting biomarkers of VIIP for correlation to ICP.
