Abstract:

Cognitive and Neural Sciences programs develop fundamental knowledge about human capabilities and performance characteristics which guide Navy and Marine Corps efforts to improve personnel assessments for selection and classification, training, equipment and system designs for human operation and maintenance, One goal is to provide scientific underpinning for more accurate prediction and enhancement of human performance in training and operational environments. A second goal is to understand the neurobiological constraints and computational capabilities of neural information processing systems for future device implementation. This report discusses The Human Learner Cognitive Architectures and Abilities Knowledge, Skill and Expertise Learning and Instruction Measurement and Psychometric Theory Vision Attention Audition Haptics and Sensory Guided Motor Control Decision Making Human Factors Technology Biological Intelligence Computation in Large Neural Networks Chemical Modulators of Information Processing Neural Processing of Sensory Information Local Neural Circuit Interactions Marine Mammals Behavioral Immunology and Manpower, Personnel and Training Research and Development Program.
