Abstract:

A study is conducted on a behavioral model to study man-machine systems when exposed to physiological stress. Using such a model, an index related to human information processing is developed. By applying this model to empirical data from a centrifuge experiment, the index is calculated and shows some interesting results. By using such an index in conjugation with this model, the experimenter can develop a design rule on how to choose tracking performance tasks to further study different types of human tracking strategies.
