Isolation Chamber

 

in astronautics, a room with dim artificial illumination and soundproof walls, in which astronauts spend many hours in isolation during evaluation and training. The astronauts’ reactions to the absence of external stimuli, such as the noise of running engines, are monitored visually or by means of telemetry devices. Isolation chambers simulate some of the conditions encountered during space flight. (SeeSPACE FLIGHT, SIMULATION OF.)

The researchers found that some of the changes are specifically linked to social factors - they only occurred when a bird was alone and did not occur when two birds were placed together in the isolation chamber.
