The Future of Neuroergonomics


Hancock, P.A., & Szalma, J.L. (2003). The future of Neuroergonomics. Theoretical Issues in Ergonomic Science, 4(1), 238-249.

This paper addresses the theoretical, the philosophical, and the ethical considerations associated with the advent and future of neuroergonomics. These issues will demand increasing attention as knowledge of the linkage of brain function to technology-based action improves from its current coarse-grained level to a more fine-grained understanding. These developments promise to open extraordinary opportunities for improved human-machine and human-human interaction, and represent the next major step in human-machine evolution. The social and psychological implications of these changes, however, must be considered if abuse of this conception is to be circumvented.
