Several human factors condition our efficiency at work, our consumption patterns, the way we interact with machines and objects, and the way we design new technology. Among these factors, emotional phenomena such as emotions or mood are particularly important. For example, they can affect our attention span, memory, motivation and behaviour. It is therefore particularly important that these affective phenomena be integrated into a Neuroergonomic approach.
This frontiers in Neuroergonomics Research Topic aims to bring together original and inter-disciplinary contributions concerning the collection, understanding and/or use of affective data in novel approaches, design tools, methodologies, techniques, and solutions within contexts closer and closer to real life.
Advances in Affective Neuroergonomics research topic will present papers using affective sciences knowledge to gain understanding of human capabilities and limitations, taking behaviour, physiological activity and brain function into account. The scopes and areas of application covered by this topic are intentionally broad, including but not limited to:
• Physical and cognitive work
• Social communication
• Consumer choices and behaviour
• Multimodal analytics
• Cognitive engineering
• Brain computer interfaces
• Human-machine systems
• Sentiment analysis
• Clinical rehabilitation
Priority will be given to contributions presenting empirically validated results using robust scientific and statistical methods. However, it is possible to submit contributions dealing with methodological proofs of concept, literature reviews, meta-analyses and opinion papers that present original viewpoints or ideas with high innovation potential.
