Following three years of development with our partners at UCLA Immex, ABM is proud to introduce a new platform for measuring team interactions called Team NeuroDynamics. While current methods for assessing teams are subjective and often occur after completion of a team effort, Team NeuroDynamics is built on the foundation of the real-time B-Alert® Cognitive [...]
The B-Alert® Fatigue Measurement Spectrum receives further validation in The Journal of Biological Psychology
The B-Alert EEG-based algorithm for real-time assessment of drowsiness/alertness was accepted for publication in this widely respected forum for achievements in understanding the biology of behavior. The article provides details on the design and validation of B-Alert with a large subject pool (n=135) participating in sleep deprivation studies to allow comparisons of EEG metrics with [...]
Mapping Neurophysiologic Synchrony Attractor States and Entropy Fluctuations during Submarine Piloting and Navigation.
Abstract: Our objective was to apply ideas from complexity theory to derive expanded models of Submarine Piloting and Navigation (SPAN) showing how teams cognitively respond to task changes and how this was altered with experience. The cognitive measure highlighted was an electroencephalography (EEG)-derived measure of engagement (EEG-E) that was modeled into a collective team variable [...]
Linking Models of Team Neurophysiologic Synchronies for Engagement and Workload with Measures of Team Communication.
Abstract: Neurophysiologic synchronies (NS) are a low level data stream derived from EEG measurements that can be collected and analyzed in near real time and in realistic settings. The objective of this study was to compare the simultaneous expression of NS specific for Engagement (NS_E) and Workload (NS_WL) and to relate them to the frequency [...]
Interactive Neuro-Educational Technologies (I-NET): Development of a Novel Platform for Neurogaming.
Abstract: The advances in sophisticated, immersive and highly engaging video gaming technology have resulted in the introduction of “serious gaming” as platforms for training. A virtual environment that mimics reality as closely as possible is an effective instructional medium and also serves as a performance improvement/evaluation platform. However, the current methodologies suffer from several limitations: [...]
Abstract: Previous EEG-based fatigue-related research primarily focused on the association between concurrent cognitive performance and time-locked physiology. The goal of this study was to investigate the capability of EEG to assess the impact of fatigue on both present and future cognitive performance during a 20min sustained attention task, the 3-Choice Active Vigilance Task (3CVT), that [...]
