RR256 - Investigating the relationship between simulated depth, cognitive function and metacognitive awareness.

Both susceptibility to and awareness of performance impairment in hyperbaric environments is of recognised interest. Past research, using small samples in uncontrolled conditions, identified changes in psychometric performance during exposure to hyperbaric environments, but not differences in divers' perception of, and actual change in, performance. This study investigates the level of awareness in divers by replicating these tasks in controlled environments.
