Abstract: Objective: To identify benchmark neurophysiological measures that predict performance at a teaming level. Advanced Brain Monitoring has a track record of success in identifying neuro-physiological metrics that impact expert behavior. For example, we characterized negative and positive predictors for marksmanship skill; persons with higher HF:LF Norm metrics of Heart rate variability (HRV, an indication [...]
Abstract: Our objective was to apply ideas from complexity theory to derive neurophysiologic models of Submarine Piloting and Navigation showing how teams cognitively organize around changes in the task and how this organization is altered with experience. The cognitive metric highlighted was an electroencephalography (EEG)- derived measure of engagement (termed NS_E) which was modeled into [...]
Development of a mobile neurocognitive assessment to delineate CNS depressant and stimulant related deficits
Many commonly used drugs – whether they are prescription, over-the-counter or illicit – impair driving through reduced cognition, judgment and motor skills. Driving while under the influence of such substances results in a significantly increased risk of injuries and fatalities. An estimated 18% of vehicular deaths are drug-related (not including alcohol), and in 2008 over [...]
Abstract: Cognitive Neurophysiologic synchronies (NS) are low level data streams derived from Electroencephalography (EEG) measurements that can be collected and analyzed in near real time and in realistic settings. The objective of this study was to relate the expression of NS for Engagement to the frequency of conversation between team members during Submarine Piloting and [...]
Abstract: The paper explores the psychophysiological metrics during expert and novice performance in marksmanship, combat deadly-force judgment & decision making (DFJDM), and in interactions of teams. EEG and ECG are used to characterize the psychophysiological profiles within all categories. Closed loop biofeedback was administered to accelerate learning during marksmanship training in which results show a [...]
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 [...]
