  Research :: Computer-Mediated Cognition and Behavior

Human cognitive abilities vary between individuals and also with the workload, stress, and physical health of the individual.

IHMC researchers study measures for assessing cognitive workloads and stress on individuals. They also investigate the role of computers in improving an individual's performance and health by either off-loading some of the work to the computer or influencing the individual's future performance.

Improved assessment of cognitive workloads can lead to remote monitoring of stress and enhance the interaction of humans with computational assistants. In addition, measures of stress under different conditions can enhance the training of individuals for high stress situations.
