Using the Satellite Symposium about Space Physiology papers for teaching

Empleando los artículos del Simposio Satélite sobre Fisiología Espacial para la enseñanza



I am Yoshinobu Ohira, from Doshisha University, Kyoto, Japan. I read the English version of the Symposium Satellite papers.(1,2,3) I have been using these papers in my classes related to space physiology and medicine, since they cover most of the important area in space physiology. Students are enjoying and are stimulated a lot.

We could not attend the Space Physiology Satellite Meeting held in Cuba last year, because we had International Society for Gravitational Physiology (ISGP) Meeting in Nagoya, Japan. But we would like to attend it, if this meeting is organized next year. I transferred the English version to some Japanese scientists, Drs. Tadaaki Mano, Yasuaki Kawai, and Kunihiko Tanaka, asking for their comments. Looking forward to attending the meeting next year.
