Objective: To study the effects of 2.0Mpa heliox exposure on Working Memory of professional divers. Methods: Four divers participated in this study. Performances on kinesthetic memory, Visual Spatial Working Memory and Object Working Memory were examined before heliox saturation, 2.0MPa heliox saturation and decompressed. Results: Repeated measures ANOVA showed that divers’ performances on kinesthetic memory were not statistically significant, but the direction of errors was opposite. The RT of visuo-spatial working memory and the ACC and RT of object Working Memory were statistically significant F=5.756 P<0.05. Conclusion: 2.0Mpa heliox exposure has an influence on working memory.
