A Closed-Loop Brain-Computer Interface for Regulating Cognitive State During Dynamic Boundary Avoidance Tasks [D19]

Superior human performance in complex tasks such as piloting a modern jet fighter or driving a Formula 1 car requires goal-directed navigation while operating within narrow and dynamic physical constraints. a balancing act of maximizing task engagement while keeping autonomic stress response in check - a failure to do so can result in catastrophic accidents. The presented experimental setup represents a closed-loop brain-computer interface system that infers cognitive workload and provides feedback to achieve a reduction in task-induced arousal/stress with the aim to increase performance during high workload boundary avoidance tasks (BAT).
