"Adaptation of cardiovascular response to stress can contribute to imrpovement of task performance.

The project aims at assessing trainee pilot cardiovascular response (pulse rate and blood pressure) under various conditions of applied stress, and determining changes over time. Visual, auditory, mathematical and logical stimuli were applied, with differing responses. Not all subjects respond in the same way. It is planned to compare these test results with results of flight training assessment."
