Abstract:

The momentary workload that is imposed by a cognitive task upon the limited capacity human information-processing system appears to be accurately reflected in the momentary level of central nervous system activation. The utility of pupillometric methods of workload assessment is evaluated and several lines of experimental evidence relating activation and cognitive function are reviewed.
