My research is to be conducted in the detection and prediction of lapses of responsiveness that are are complete losses of responsiveness typically for 0.5-15 s in human. These can be very dangerous for both man and machines in all sectors that require the alertness and attention of human operator.
Though much research has been done in physiological characterization and EEG-based detection of lapses, the aim of this project is to explore one or more new approaches towards substantial increases in real-time EEG-based detection and prediction of microsleeps.
