The Clinical Neuroergonomics section of Frontiers in Neuroergonomics publishes high-quality fundamental, translational, and applied research across the field of clinical neuroscience and neuroengineering to enhance clinical performance with an emphasis on improving patient care, safety, and satisfaction.
Clinical Neuroergonomics encompasses the utilization of mobile neurotechnologies (neuroimaging and neurostimulation) for brain health and performance across the lifespan and prognosis, diagnosis, or personalized treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders, from hospital to out-patient-clinical settings, including home environment.
In addition to patient monitoring and assessment, Clinical Neuroergonomics seeks to capitalize on analyses of clinicians' brain function to advance the understanding of learning, perception, and decision-making in healthcare through the use of functional brain imaging. Among other topics, these applications include:
· Neuro-monitoring of the doctors and staff to improve objective assessment, future clinicians' training, and neural biofeedback to enhance patient safety.
· Developing or adapting mobile neuroimaging techniques to capture brain activity dysfunction in diverse psychiatric and neurological conditions, focusing on everyday settings.
· Developing or adapting neurostimulation techniques to modulate brain activity dysfunction in diverse psychiatric and neurological conditions.
· Using mobile neurotechnology for prognosis, diagnosis, or personalized treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders.
· Using portable neuroimaging techniques and psycho-physiological sensors to better understand clinical skills learning and the effect of stressors (fatigue, uncertainty, emotions, mental workload) on clinician operative decision making, psychomotor and attentional abilities.
· Designing neuro-adaptive technology to assess changes in cortical brain response of clinicians and patients during critical medical operation to mitigate human error, improve performance and enhance training.
