Capability of a neck worn device to measure sleep/wake, airway position, and differentiate benign snoring from obstructive sleep apnea

Abstract To evaluate the accuracy of a neck-worn device in measuring sleep/wake, detecting supine airway position, and using loud snoring to screen for obstructive sleep apnea. Study A included 20 subjects who wore the neck-device during polysomnography (PSG), with 31 records obtained from diagnostic and split-night studies. Study B included 24 community-based snorers studied in-home [...]

Sleep Profiler Automated Sleep Staging compared to Manual Scoring

Download Full Article The objective of this study was to investigate the accuracy of an automated sleep-staging algorithm that is based on a single bipolar EEG signal. Three raters each manually scored the polysomnographic records from 44 patients referred for sleep evaluation. The mean positive percent agreement across subjects and stages was 72.6%, approximately [...]

Emergent Leadership and Team Engagement: An Application of Neuroscience Technology and Methods

Abstract: Although the topic of employee engagement has gained increasing attention, little is known about engagement in team settings. In the current study, we examined individual engagement, emergent leadership, and team-level engagement in 31 teams of MBA students who attempted to solve a case problem dealing with corporate social responsibility. A feature of this study [...]

Neurophysiological predictors of Team performance

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 [...]

Modeling the neurodynamic complexity of submarine navigation teams

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 [...]
