Special Issue "Studies in Human Performance and Experience: Neuroscience and Functional Brain Imaging"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2021).
Interests: functional brain imaging; functional near-infrared spectroscopy; neuroimaging; human performance; learning and training; human–autonomy teaming
The past two decades have seen the growing importance of technologies deployed to provide measures of cognitive functioning as well as measures of stress, fatigue, or emotion in field settings. From the aerospace industry to healthcare, there are numerous unmet needs that can be addressed by properly adapting these technologies and methodologies. Quantitative assessments of joint human–autonomy performance, the provision of analytics for the design of curricula, and scenarios to enable adaptive and personalized training are just few examples illustrating the potential role of these technologies. This trend also provides us with an opportunity to apply such technologies in more contextually real and dynamic environments.
The measurement of neurophysiological changes in real time during complex, real world tasks can help us evaluate decision-making and reliably compare the workload burden of next-generation systems versus legacy systems in various domains. The goal of this Special Issue is to present a collection of studies focusing on neuroimaging and key cognitive areas of interest when attempting to explore the correlation between neurophysiological state, task load, and level of expertise. We are soliciting a number of studies in which wearable physiological and neuro-physiological sensors and neuroimaging devices, such as functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS), electroencephalogram (EEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), eye tracking, and galvanic skin response (GSR), are used to evaluate human performance and training in real operational settings.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Brain Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
