By Teresa von Fuchs




Dr. Philip Lieberman conducted a first-of-its-kind study on the effects of lack of oxygen, a condition called Hypoxia, on cognitive ability. Mt. Everest climbers volunteered to carry Palm Tungsten T handhelds and self administer tests, developed by Lieberman and Professor Stephen Kosslyn, that assessed their decision-making abilities under extreme conditions. Using the Tungsten T’s wireless connection, test results and voice samples were sentback to base camp for analysis. The research was funded by NASA, which hopes to use a similar technique when monitoring crews in deep space, where cosmic rays can have effects similar to Hypoxia.
