Neural signatures of vigilance decrements predict behavioural errors before they occur

Hamid Karimi-Rouzbahani, Alexandra Woolgar & Anina Rich
Abstract- There are many monitoring environments, such as railway control, in which lapses of attention can have tragic consequences. Problematically, sustained monitoring for rare targets is difficult, with more misses and longer reaction times over time. What changes in the brain underpin these “vigilance decrements”? We designed a multiple-object monitoring (MOM) paradigm to examine how the neural representation of information varied with target frequency and time performing the task. Behavioural performance decreased over time for...
