RESEARCH ACTIVITIES

  1. Analysis of GHQ-12 data collected from Antarctica Expedition:
  2. The project has four-fold objective ___ a). To determine high and low stress months in Antarctica b). To determine the relationship between GHQ-12 and the arousal level of the expeditioners. c). To relate changes in GHQ-12 and the changes in life events and d). Relationship among GHQ-12 scores, life events, arousal level and environmental changes across the months. Initially, significant differences in environmental, physiological and psychological parameters across months were determined. Results revealed that the month of July of winter season and the month of December of the summer season are the relatively high and less stressful months respectively. Physiological stress measured by GSR and psychological distress levels assessed by GHQ-12 were also high in July and less in December. The environmental uncertainties continued from July to September and the GSR level was also high in this period. But GHQ-12 score was relatively low in August and September suggesting psychological adaptation of expeditioners with the environmental stresses. Analysis is going on to determine other objectives. One research paper has been accepted for presentation in the 91st Indian Sc. Congress.
