The objective of the study was to assess the possibility of recording EEG data and the quality of these data in human centrifuge conditions. The study was performed using equipment used in the clinical setting. A total of 10 male subjects aged 24 to 50 years took part in the study. As shown by the study results, the EEG signal strength increased with increasing acceleration; so did the number of artifacts within the EEG spectrum. It is possible to record EEG signals in the centrifuge with no artifacts that might render the analysis of the EEG record impossible.
