EEG recording session performed within the NINA project dedicated to neurometrics in Air Traffic Management

NINA project, preliminary EEG recording sessions

At the beginning of July, Deep Blue, Sapienza Università di Roma and ENAC took part in some EEG recording sessions in Toulouse (France) at ENAC premises. These activities were carried out within the first work package of the NINA project, which uses neurophysiological measures to assess air traffic controllers’ mental state. They aimed to fine tune the EEG and the other neurophysiological measures (such as ocular activities and HR) to characterise the cognitive state of the user involved in “ad hoc” designed tasks, both in laboratory and ATM settings.
Data analyses are ongoing to identify the different mental states relevant to the tasks, combining neurometrics and physiologic indicators.

Thanks to all the participants who “lent their head” for this activity!
