Advances in Neuroergonomics and Cognitive Engineering

Proceedings of the AHFE 2018 International Conference on euroergonomics and Cognitive Engineering

This book brings together a wide-ranging set of contributed articles that address

emerging practices and future trends in cognitive engineering and neuroergonomics —both aim to harmoniously integrate human operator and computational system, the former through a tighter cognitive fit and the latter a more effective neural fit with the system. The chapters in this book uncover novel discoveries and communicate new understanding and the most recent advances in the areas of workload and stress, activity theory, human error and risk, and neuroergonomic measures, cognitive computing as well as associated applications.

The book is organized into six main sections:

Section 1: Cognition and Performance

Section 2: Neurophysiological Sensing

Section 3: Brain—Computer Interfaces

Section 4: Systemic-Structural Activity Theory

Section 5: Cognitive Computing and Internet of Things

Section 6: Cognitive Design

Collectively, the chapters in this book have an overall goal of developing a

deeper understanding of the couplings between external behavioral and internal

mental actions, which can be used to design harmonious work and play environments that seamlessly integrate human, technical, and social systems.
