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
