Dr. Steven Moore

Mt. Sinai Associate Professor Dr. Steven Moore has been deeply involved with the human spaceflight program for 15 years, including five as a researcher for the National Space Biomedical Research Institute. Dr. Moore is currently developing a Galvanic vestibular stimulation (GVS) system that safely induces the sensory and mobility disturbances commonly experienced by astronauts after returning to Earth's gravity. The system could be used as an operational training tool for future long-duration missions. In addition to his NSBRI work, Moore has worked with NASA and the European Space Agency on in- and post-flight assessment of astronaut sensorimotor function. A critical aspect of Dr. Moore's space research has been translation of technologies developed by the Human Aerospace Laboratory to clinical Earth-based applications. Ambulatory motion capture technology has been used to improve assessment and treatment of Parkinson's disease, and laptop-based eye tracking systems have been used to assess patients with Chagas disease and diabetes in remote areas of Bolivia and Peru.
