Multitasking and work interruptions - neurophysiological approaches for investigating cognitive performance capacities

Project number: F 2247 Institution: Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) Status: Completed Project

Description:

Multitasking and work interruptions can be considered as a high psychological workload. Whether human information processing capacity is sufficient for multitasking demands and whether work can be continued without effectiveness lost after work interruption/disturbances is controversial. Cognitive performance prerequisites for these phenomena will be studied in this project using neurophysiological approaches.
