EEG fingerprints of task-independent mental workload discrimination 1269 634 Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics (JBHI)
In the nascent field of neuroergonomics, mental workload assessment is one of the most important issues and has an apparent significance in real-world applications. Although prior research has achieved efficient single-task classification, scatted studies on cross-task mental workload assessment usually result in unsatisfactory performance. Here, we introduce a data-driven analysis framework to overcome the challenges regarding task-independent workload assessment using a fusion of EEG spectral characteristics and unveil the common neural mechanisms underlying mental workload. read more
