Cerebral Lateralization of Vigilance: A Function of Task Difficulty.

Citation:
Helton, W.S., Warm, J.S., Tripp, L.D., Matthews, G., Parasuraman, R., & Hancock, P.A. (2010). Cerebral lateralization of vigilance: A function of task difficulty. Neuropsychologia, 48, 1683-1688.

Abstract:
Functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) measures of cerebral oxygenation levels were collected from participants performing difficult and easy versions of a 12 min vigilance task and for controls who merely watched the displays without a work imperative.


Triggering Dynamic Function Allocation

Excerpt:
     The article, “The Future of Function Allocation,” by Hancock and Scallen October 1996 issue very well explains the paradigm shift that has taken place in this area of human factors.


The Future of Function Allocation

Excerpt:
     In the inaugural issue of Ergonomics in Design, Robert Fuld provided severe criticism of functional allocation as a practical design process (Fuld, 1993).


A Note on The Speed-Amplitude Function in Movement Control

Citation:
