The Consumer Neuroergonomics section of Frontiers in Neuroergonomics publishes high-quality neuroergonomics research on (envisioned) products, services and systems in the context of use by consumers, operators and professionals. The focus is on their potential added value with respect to current practice.
Neuroergonomic products can be diverse and range from tangible tools, to services and business strategies. Examples are tools that responds to lapses of attention in a driver, wearables that predict intended movement in order to adjust an exoskeleton, methods to continuously quantify students’ experience of a video lecture in order to improve it, algorithms that predict food choice behavior, strategies to enhance decision making in organizations, and guidelines of when and how to apply neuroergonomics. The focus should be on whether the product (potentially) enhances well-being or performance of an individual or an organization. Likely, combinations of tools and use of context information are required. High-quality studies that present a (current) lack of added value of neuroergonomic methods over current practice are welcomed as well, as are studies that do not build on brain signals but other physiological information such as electrodermal activity, pupil dilation and electromyography.
Areas covered by this section include, but are not limited to:
Neuroergonomic evaluation of systems and products
Innovative application areas of neuroergonomics
Validation of neuroergonomic products, including wearables
Neurobusiness and neuromarketing
Hybrid systems combining different sources of (physiological) information
Applications tailored for specific domains: Education, defense and safety, health and well-being, food and consumables industry, automotive, entertainment
Ethics: (mis)use of the public’s lack of knowledge of what neurotechnology can(not) do, placebo effects
Work that is targeted at establishing a generic quantification of cognitive and affective processes, or mainly aims to unravel their underlying neural mechanisms, can be submitted to other sections of Frontiers in Neuroergonomics.
