Abstract

Working memory (WM) plays an important role in pilots since they have to continuously integrate and dynamically update information within a rapidly changing environment. WM is essential for overcoming response conflict and for optimal selective attention performance. Yet, WM is a capacity-limited system and increasing the demands on WM reduces the ability to ignore irrelevant stimuli and can led decreased performance in dual –tasking. In the present study we used an experimental approach aiming at providing evidence for the sensitivity of the functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) in providing measures of brain activity within the prefrontal cortex (PFC), with regard to WM-specific task demands combined to an additional different secondary task.
