4. Changes in Physiological Function of Human Body Caused by Weightlessness

1) Cardiovascular function change

2) Dizziness, nausea, abdominal discomfort, postural inversion and other symptoms of motion sickness when in weightlessness, known as space motion sickness, also known as space adaptation syndrome

3) Bone salt metabolism disorder.

4) Muscle changes caused by weightlessness, mainly performed as weakening muscle group tension against the gravity, and even shrinking.
