This thematic series will address advances, gaps, and roadmaps for physiological measurements in the field laboratory. Topics to be covered will include (but not be limited to):

  • Techniques, sensors, experimental paradigms and analytical approaches. Studies addressing cardiography, respiration, biopotentials, thermoregulation, oxygen store management, blood chemistry, and metabolism in all species. 
  • Novel development or application of sensors to study physiology, including initial studies in the laboratory. 
  • Advances in sensor technology that improve functionality for deployment in field scenarios such as novel devices, modification of lab-based sensors or adapted human medical probes, miniaturization, and on-board data analysis. 
  • Gaps in technology that limit application of laboratory or medical devices to field studies. Perspectives addressing concepts and priorities for future research.
