Physiology in extreme conditions

Even though the interest for the physiology in extreme conditions is not new, we only start to see the benefits it generates on the healthcare.

Examples:

  • Brain mechanism when facing the extreme conditions (hypoxia, extreme heat and cold…)
  • The sensorimotor changes when facing these extreme conditions (micro-gravity, extreme efforts…)

All these researches may bring new ways to approach the patients as well as innovations and applications. Moreover, climatic changes could have a significant impact on the patient and the physiology in extreme conditions could bring a significant help. This is what we try to demonstrate and why we try to find the reasons why the human beings are constantly exploring those limits.
