Neuroimaging Study of Mental Fatigue

The primary objective of technology development in this proposal is to develop neuroimaging technologies, based on modeling and computation, which are able to on distinguish activation brain networks and default mode brain networks in electroencephalography (EEG) data to identify different brain states. They propose to separate EEG data into components due to their temporal dynamic characterizations of statistical independence and due to their different spatial compartmentalization. The primary objective of scientific investigation in this proposal, with developed technologies, are to identify and monitoring brain states with EEG data; to quantify interference of mental fatigue on brain states due to the time-on-task effect; and to assess the recovery time after developing mental fatigues.
