Abstract

The influence of fluctuations of atmospheric pressure on the functional state of the humans was studied during spring, autumn and winter seasons. Sensory-motor reaction time and self-reported wellbeing, activity and mood were used for evaluation of functional state. The inter-individual variations of those parameters were compared to meteorological parameters using rank order correlation and general linear model. It was found that atmospheric pressure fluctuations have a stronger negative effect with periods of 120 - 1200 s and 20 - 120 s on psychological self-assessment and with periods of 10 - 20 s and 5 - 10 s on sensory-motor reaction time than the fluctuations with other periods.
