9780195177619: Neuroergonomics: The Brain at Work (Human Technology Interaction Series)

Neuroergonomics can be defined as the study of brain and behavior at work. It combines two disciplines--neuroscience, the study of brain function, and human factors, the study of how to match technology with the capabilities and limitations of people so they can work effectively and safely. The goal of merging these two fields is to use the startling discoveries of human brain and physiological functioning both to inform the design of technologies in the workplace and home, and to provide new training methods that enhance performance, expand capabilities, and opitimize the fit between people and technology. Research in the area of neuroergonomics has blossomed in recent years with the emergence of noninvasive techniques for monitoring human brain function that cna be used to study various aspects of human behavior in relation to technology and work, including mental workload, visual attention, working memory, motor control, human-automation interaction, and adaptive automation. This volume will provide the first systematic overview of this emerging area, describing the theoretical background, basic research, major methods, as well as the new and future areas of application. This collection will benefit a number of readers: the experienced researcher investigating related questions in human factors and cognitive neuroscience, the student wishing to get a rapid but systematic overview of the field, and the designer interested in novel approaches and new ideas for application. Researchers in human factors and ergonomics, neuroscience, cognitive psychology, medicine, industrial engineering, and computer science will find this volume most helpful.

About the Author:


Raja Parasuraman is Professor of Psychology at George Mason University. He has longstanding research programs in human factors and cognitive neuroscience. His previous books include Varieties of Attention (1984), Automation and Human Performance (1996), and The Attentive Brain (1998). In 2004 he received the Franklin V. Taylor Award for Lifetime Achievement in Applied Experimental and Engineering Psychology from the American Psychological Association. From 2001 to 2005, he served as Chair of the National Research Council's Committee on Human Factors in the National Academy of Sciences.

Matt Rizzo is Professor of Neurology, Engineering, and Public Policy at the University of Iowa, where he directs the Division of Neuroergonomics and is a senior member of the Division of Behavioral Neurology and Cognitive Neuroscience. He is also a Development Executive and Science Advisor at a New York-based media company producing documentaries for major television venues. Dr. Rizzo has longstanding research support through the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. He has contributed to many scholarly papers and books, served on numerous professional committees, and is a member of several professional organizations.

Review:


"The problems posed by Neuroergonomics-involving the reciprocal interaction of brain and physical world-not only provide ergonomics with a route to analysis of work that goes beyond traditional assessment of performance and subjective ratings, but can also enhance the efforts of basic neuroscience. This book should be on the shelf of every human factors and ergonomics researcher who cares about the future of the field. It elaborates the promise of what might be and the effort required to complete the journey." --Marvin J. Dainoff, Professor Emeritus of Psychology and Director, Center for Ergonomic Research, Miami University


"Don't be caught without it-Parasuraman, Rizzo, and their colleagues have organized for us a conceptual framework and its interconnecting lattices of theory, methodology, and practice. Left unchecked, as technology's jumps and starts have proven to be, modern society has lost the bubble on humans' ability to harness its benefits and, unacceptably, understand and curb its often-multifaceted risks. In delineating a more fundamental understanding of humans' evolved cognitive and sensory processes, Neuroergonomics pushes back with the necessary foundation for positive exploitation of today's scientific advances. With its convergent-technologies mantra, this book will be current for years to come...sure to be a reference classic." --Rene Jos. de Pontbriand, Associate Director for Research for the Human Research and Engineering Directorate at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory


"In this authoritative volume the world of work (ergonomics) meets the new methods and results that have been developing from cognitive neuroscience, neuroimaging, and molecular genetics. The chapters illustrate how this mixture of science and application provides the potential for designing new technologies and improving their use by people." --Michael Posner, Professor Emeritus, University of Oregon, and Adjunct Professor, Weill Medical College, Sackler Institute


"Parasuraman and Rizzo have forced us to think about humans at work in a whole new way. At first the term 'neuroergonomics' made me skeptical, but the book makes clear the importance and timeliness of this new brain-based perspective. The editors have gathered the key authors and made a great contribution." --Thomas B. Sheridan, Professor of Engineering and Applied Psychology (Mechanical Engineering), Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology


"For a comprehensive understanding of the field of neuroergonomics, this is the book. The editors and contributors are distinguished researchers and this is a landmark book for this fairly young field..."--Doody's
