Lohani, M., Payne, B. R., & Strayer, D. L. (2019). A Review of Psychophysiological Measures to Assess Cognitive States in Real-World Driving. Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, 13.


As driving functions become increasingly automated, motorists run the risk of becoming cognitively removed from the driving process. Psychophysiological measures may provide added value not captured through behavioral or self-report measures alone. This paper provides a selective review of the psychophysiological measures that can be utilized to assess cognitive states in real-world driving environments. This review synthesizes the literature on in-vehicle psychophysiological measures to advance the development of effective human-machine driving interfaces and driver support systems.
