Abstract:

There is a general agreement among military behavioural scientists that operational stress affects higher mental functions more than the simpler levels of perceptual-motor behaviour. A number of piloting as well as non-piloting jobs are vulnerable to this source of performance impairment. In general, few laboratories are studying behaviour at this more complex level. The Specialists Meeting was divided into two half day sessions, one on current studies and the other on required methodology and present deficiencies. This publication includes the 11 papers which were presented at Ankara, Turkey, on 21 October 1975.
