Previous research projects have been funded by the US Air Force and General Motors Corp. These projects have investigated the use of physiological responses to measure attention during performance of manual control task and in driving simulations. Potential applications of this research include the prediction of driver distraction and the use of psychophysiological measures of attentional underload and/or overload as a component of an augmented-cognition adaptive-interface to technological systems in aircraft and automobiles. Previous projects have also looked at developing a psychophysiological selection test for jobs such as air traffic control specialist that have very high demands upon an operator’s ability to divide attention.
