During the Year 2 POP 08 MAR 2014 07 MAR 2015, a number of personnel, including Research Scientist and Research Assistant I, were hired. USUHS IRB 1 and HRPO approvals were obtained for the primary study. Cognitive efficacy tasks were tested, revised, and finalized for the primary study. EEG and eye tracking equipment was set up and integrated, and study personnel received training on data collection procedures, including EEG, eye-tracking, and virtual reality driving simulator data acquisition. Data collection for the pilot study is nearly complete and data analyses are currently under way. Based upon examination of performance and self-report data, the cognitive efficacy tasks appear to successfully discriminate between workload conditions. We have begun development of algorithms to analyze EEG data. Key milestones are behind schedule due to a late start, but we are attempting to make up this time through accelerated recruitment efforts and data collection for the primary study.
