NEUMET-CO, funded by the Office of Naval Research, is a neuroimaging-based system of cognitive models to be used as a novel intelligent tutoring tool in training applications.
The cognitive models under development by UC will predict decision-making capabilities of warfighters, and will consider factors that are influenced by the soldier’s social-cultural environment (such as rational thinking, volition, personality traits, risk-taking ability, etc.). The CTI team is developing the training test bed, including the instructional design, application design, and proof of concept. Wright State University team led by Assistant Professor Ion Juvina will conduct behavior and fMRI data collection studies to validate the technology.
NUEMET-CO will assist the military by performing higher-order interactions amongst various neural substrates to help identify soldiers who might need additional training to enhance their cognitive ability. This capability will allow them to make rapid decisions without exhausting higher-order interactions, and will support and validate the efficacy of a variety of training efforts.
