Note: From the introduction: "The purpose of the current study performed in the JAXA-CFE (Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency confined facility) is to identify potential biomarkers which were not determined or investigated in previous experiments in similar confined environment conditions. We examined diurnal rhythm of salivary cortisol during a 2-week stay in the confined facility by collecting saliva samples four times daily to evaluate influences of confinement. We also examined skin and facial image parameters to explore novel potential markers. We have previously presented preliminary results. We have continued investigations and report the results in this paper." This article may be obtained online without charge.
