Abstract

This paper provides a focused and organized review of the research progress on neurophysiological indicators, also called 'neurometrics,' to show how they can effectively address some of the most important human factors (HFs) needs in the air traffic management (ATM) field. In order to better understand and highlight available opportunities of such neuroscientific applications, state of the art on the most involved HFs and related cognitive processes (e.g., mental workload and cognitive training) are presented together with examples of possible applications in current and future ATM scenarios. Furthermore, this paper will discuss the potential enhancements that further research and development activities could bring to the efficiency and safety of the ATM service.
