Study on the Evolution of individuals' Relation with their Close Spaciality, with a strong foncus on sensory perceptions, before-during-at the end of a stay in extreme and unusual and/or isolated and confined environment from the perspective of a take int

The sensory perception assessment
protocol ERISI, Year 2 – known as « Per-Sens » part, aims to study
the possible sensory perception changes that might experiment individuals
during long stay/missions in extreme & unusual environments (EUE – eg. [sub]antarctic
stations – up to 14 months in the field) or isolated & confined
environments (ICE – eg. Submarines SSBN – board from 70 to 90 days).

If, literature indicates that sense, considered independently of each other,
might be modified by such experiences, no holistic research has yet measured
what is the very impact of a long stay/mission in EUE/ICE on the sensory
perception of individuals and, consequently, the impact of possible changes of
perception on their mood, stress level and/or performance.

This study will focus on the evaluation of (1) visual, (2) olfactory, (3)
gustatory, (4) tactile, (5) auditory individuals’ perceptions and (6)
proprioception and body scheme, on an triple investigative pattern “at the
beginning”, “during” “at the end” of the stay/mission in ICE/EUE.
