Institute of Anatomy

Without the support of the University of Zurich none of this would be possible. The visionary minds of Professor O. Ullrich, Professor D.P. Wolfer and Professor H.-P. Lipp permitted us to fully dig into this subject and create a new and promissing extension of the research concerning behavioural neuroscience. Our gratitute includes obviously also the many helping hands who are not direct project members, but who’s support and expertise made the difference:

ESA- Human Spaceflight and Exploration

We would like to address our most special thanks to ESA which enabled us to perform our experiments under the best conditions possible. Our very special thank you goes to Vladimir Pletser who was always personally concerned about us and the experiment. He gave us very important imput and feedback to ensure a flawless progress of the experiments. With his kind personality he managed to motivate us all to give our best under any circumstances and to solve minor and major problems with a smile while staying always focussed .

Of course we do not forget our friends at Novespace, who created a very friendly athmosphere for us to work. The interaction with the professionals at Novespace, the representatives of ESA, the press and last but not least with the other experimenters was just awesome! We felt like working in a big family, where everyone helped each other if needed. The guys and girls at Novespace also managed to get the help of the Sabena-technicians next door. Everyone was always available for problem solving and to help carrying our 50kg rack module to the A300 and back. At this stage we would also like to address our thanks to Dominique, who was always willing to help!
