Engineering Psychophysiology: Issues and Applications

By Richard W. Backs; Wolfram Boucsein | Go to book overview

lished in this case, a significant interaction of resource exploitation and task performance with a remarkable time lag is to be assumed.


CONCLUDING REMARKS

Obviously, the examples and methods described here cannot provide a complete summary of all the possible contributions of the engineering discipline to application. Rather, this chapter merely sampled situations to illustrate the long process from the recording of the psychophysiological signals to the interpretation of psychophysiological measures according to external conditions. On the one hand, engineering methods might help to outline information of relevance and to ensure high quality data processing. But on the other hand, the application of engineering methods is somewhat complicated. Finally, even detailed modeling will not explain the range of human physiological reactions completely.

Considering the number of studies using psychophysiological measures and the potential of the application, a more concrete conceptual framework is required to integrate past studies, differentiate more precisely between insufficient measurement qualities and nonsignificant, but true, results, and obtain a more exhaustive explanation of human behavior. Only a multidisciplinary effort promises progress in this direction.
