Vortrag von Raja Parasuraman
Lea | Am 01, Jun 2011
Raja Parasuraman is Professor of Psychology at George Mason University, Fairfax, VA, USA. He is also Director of the Graduate Program in Human Factors and Applied Cognition and Director of the Center of Excellence in Neuroergonomics, Technology, and Cognition (CENTEC).
He has long-standing research programs in two fields, human factors and human-machine systems and cognitive neuroscience of attention. He has merged his interests in both fields by developing the field of neuroergonomics, which he defines as the study of brain and behavior at work.
The Center of Excellence in Neuroergonomics, Technology, and Cognition (CENTEC) was established at George Mason University in 2010. CENTEC scientists carry out research and training in different areas of neuroscience applied to the study of human performance in tasks representative of work and other everyday settings.
CENTEC projects include: neuroimaging (fMRI, ERP) studies of complex perception, cognition, and action; molecular genetics of decision-making; neural bases of human-human and human-automation trust; neuroadaptive training and brain computer interfaces; use of brain and cognitive stimulation techniques for enhancing learning; and related topics.
In this talk I will provide an overview of the development of neuroergonomics and a sampling of CENTEC research topics.
Alle Interessierten sind herzlich eingeladen den Vortrag am 15.06.2011 von 18:15-19:45 Raum MA 004 zu besuchen!
