Research Area Technical Objectives

  • Neurocognitive Performance - Generate a preliminary model of brain electroencephalographic (EEG) patterns associated with specific aspects of focal and shifting attention.
  • Advanced Computational Approaches - Develop concepts for high density, dry-electrode, wireless EEG data collection systems.
  • Neurotechnologies - Develop algorithms to use EEG to monitor and detect cognitive fatigue state under conditions of environmental and task complexities that more resemble a real-world vehicle operator scenario.
