NASA Public Affairs Officer Brandi Dean speaks with Dr. Rachael Seidler, the principal investigator of the NeuroMapping experiment, which had its first data takes on orbit today. Through sensory, motor and cognitive testing of International Space Station crew members before, during and after a flight, NeuroMapping is looking into whether and how long-duration exposure to the spaceflight environment changes brain structure and function.
