High altitude sickness (experienced by mountain climbers and U2 pilots) could lead to a broad spectrum of disorders in the brain and other organs as a result of low pressure and oxygen. This research uses a custom made, MRI compatible negative pressure chamber to observe the effects of hypobaric pressure on cerebral blood flow and neurovascular reactivity to hypercapnia.
