Abstract:

A THREAT TO MAN'S CAPABILITY TO FUNCTION EFFECTIVELY AND SAFELY AS AN INTEGRAL PART OF MILITARY SYSTEMS IS THE HIGH MENTAL WORKLOAD IMPOSED BY THESE SYSTEMS. THIS PROPOSED EFFORT IS AIMED AT DETERMINING THE FEASIBILITY OF ENHANCING PERFORMANCE ON COGNITIVE TASKS OR REMEDIATING PERFORMANCE DECREMENTS ON MENTAL TASKS BY PROVIDING PHYSIOLOGICAL FEEDBACK. PHASE I WILL ENTAIL MEASURING EYE MOTION BASED INDICES OF MENTAL WORKLOAD TO DETERMINE WHETHER THESE INDICANT REFLECT 1) SCALED WORKLOAD AND, 2) DECREASING MENTAL ALERTNESS THAT OCCURS UNDER LONG DURATION VIGILANCE CONDITIONS. PHASE II WILL ENTAIL DEVELOPING BIOCYBERNETIC-BASED ALGORITHMS TO USE TO FEED BACK TO OPERATORS TO DETERMINE WHETHER COGNITIVE PERFORMANCE CAN BE IMPROVED OR REMEDIATED AFTER DECREMENTS OCCUR WITH EXTENDED TASK PERFORMANCE.
