Wearable neurofeedback training for boosting attention regulation at the wheel

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We tested the effects of a three-week neurofeedback (NF) empowerment protocol on drivers’ cognitive performance by looking at both behavioural and electrophysiological (Event-Related Potentials, ERPs) markers of attention regulation skills. Results highlighted higher task-related ERP marking attention orientation and cognitive control processes (the N2 ERP component) in the experimental group receiving NF training compared to control subjects. Present findings suggest that intensive NF-based training might be a valuable way to improve drivers focused and sustained attention mechanisms, with practical implications for the development of proactive prevention protocols for driving performance.
