CASE's own, Matt Wilkes, has just had a Letter to the Editor published in the High Altitude Medicine and Biology Journal!!

Matt is currently leading The Free Flight Physiology Project: a multidisciplinary bid to use novel telemetry to investigate the physiology, cognitive performance and safety of pilots during free flight.

The letter discusses the research they have carried out so far and explains what they propose to do to investigate and compare
the physiological mechanisms that permit extreme feats of free flight to take place in humans and nonhuman animals, integrating developments in wearable sensor technology with medicine, spatial ecology, and meteorology.
