This chapter considers the utility of the ongoing, scalp-recorded, human electroencephalogram (EEG) as a tool in neuroergonomics research and practice. It first describes how the spectral composition of the EEG changes in response to variations in task difficulty or level of alertness during highly controlled cognitive tasks. It also considers methods for analysis of such signals that might be suitable for use in a continuous monitoring context. Finally, it reviews generalizations of those methods to assess complex, computer-based tasks that are more representative of real-world tasks.

Keywords:   human electroencephalogram, neuroergonomics research, EEG signals, EEG changes
