What are the effects of high altitude on the human body and in particular its brain functions? How can we adapt to it? To answer these questions, 14 volunteer guinea pigs will undergo a series of tests at the Vallot Observatory (4300 m), near the summit of Mont Blanc. A scientific and mountain experience. 14 voluntary lend themselves to a battery of day and night tests (stress tests, neuromuscular tests, sleep assessment, cognitive tests, etc.) in the plain at Grenoble University Hospital on the one hand, and at high altitude for 6 days at the Vallot Observatory (4300 m). The central objective of this study is to evaluate the impact of hypoxia on brain function during a stay of several days at high altitude.
