Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

1 Scopus citations


This paper presents a general overview of the implementation of cognitive skills in the normal human brain as viewed from a modern functional brain imaging perspective. It is hoped that information of this type will assist eventually in developing a more informed neurobiological basis for the understanding of the cognitive impairments that occur all too frequently during sojourns to extreme altitude.
