Abstract:

The existence of grandmother cells, i.e. hypothetical cells that respond to specific entities with high specificity, have long been theorized. The objective of this project was to develop non-traditional techniques for assessment of cognition and training effectiveness of mixed expertise, collaborative teams. This effort comprised of three specific aims 1 to develop a portable wireless, real-time f-EEG system for measurement and assessment of cognitive function in response to visual stimuli 2 to develop algorithms and strategies for detecting significant events to improve situational awareness and 3 to combine aims 1 and 2 to propose a strategy for collective decision support for mixed expertise, collaborative teams. Through the 8-month STIR duration, the CUA team designed, developed and tested the function of a portable, real-time f-EEG system Aim 1 and conducted preliminary trials to develop algorithms and strategies to detect significant events in response to visual stimuli and to study the existence of grandmother cells Aim 2. Preliminary results show that strong and significant personal identification with visual stimuli exhibit unique transmission dynamics and response as compared to viewing generic images. This provides evidence to support the grandmother neuron and may have high potential for providing quantitative assessment of training effectiveness.
