Research Mission

The Ashton Graybiel Spatial Orientation Laboratory (AGSOL) has more than 30 years of experience in studying human factors, spatial orientation, sensory motor adaptation, and space motion sickness in space flight and parabolic flight, as well as in a variety of force field environments including high G, zero G, rotation/artificial gravity, and virtual/simulator environments.

The Graybiel Laboratory’s experimental program is designed to advance our effort to develop a predictive model of human vestibular orientation, posture and neural control of movement. Novel experiments are performed to further our understanding of the human body and brain.

By researching and examining a broad spectrum of topics we can help explain and solve practical problems in aeronautics, astronautics, and clinical populations.
