Designing Graphical Elements for Cognitively Demanding Activities: An Account on Fine-Tuning for Colors [chapter]

Gilles Tabart, Stéphane Conversy, Jean-Luc Vinot, Sylvie Athènes
Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This not only hinders the design process, but can also lead to misinterpretation from users. This article is an account of our work as designers of colors for graphical elements.  ...  Though a number of tools support such design activities, we found that they were not suited for designing the subtle but important details of an interface used in cognitively demanding activities.  ...  In order to see the results and finely tune the design, we built an image containing 6 examples of the exact shapes to be colored.  ...

Adaptive Engagement of Cognitive Control in Context-Dependent Decision Making

Michael L. Waskom, Michael C. Frank, Anthony D. Wagner
2016 Cerebral Cortex  
The capacity for flexible information processing of this sort is thought to depend on a cognitive control system in frontoparietal cortex, but the costs and limitations of control entail that its engagement  ...  Here, we show that humans reduce demands on control by exploiting statistical structure in their environment.  ...  This work was supported by the Stanford Center for Cognitive and Neurobiological Imaging and the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation (Network Initiative on Culture, Brain, and Learning).  ...

2015 bioRxiv   pre-print
Here we describe an automated platform for continuous long-term recordings of neural activity and behavior in freely moving animals.  ...  An unsupervised algorithm identifies and tracks the activity of single units over weeks of recording, dramatically simplifying the analysis of large datasets.  ...  We found that firing rate correlations accounted for a significant fraction of the variance in state-tuning similarity ( Figure 5E -F), particularly when the firing rate was averaged on a scale that matched  ...

Subtle Distinctions: How Attentional Templates Influence EEG Parameters of Cognitive Control in a Spatial Cuing Paradigm

Christine Mertes, Daniel Schneider
2018 Frontiers in Human Neuroscience  
Using event-related potentials (ERPs) of the electroencephalogram, we investigated how cognitive control is altered by the scope of an attentional template currently activated in visual working memory.  ...  Participants performed a spatial cuing task where an irrelevant color singleton cue was presented prior to a target array.  ...  For those conditions where the target was defined by a specific feature, a more fine-tuned template had to be activated in working memory.  ...

Measuring relative timings of brain activities using fMRI

Santosh B. Katwal, John C. Gore, J. Christopher Gatenby, Baxter P. Rogers
2013 NeuroImage  
We aimed to detect fine differences in the timings of brain activities beyond those previously measured from fMRI data in human subjects.  ...  For relative timing measurement, Granger causality outperformed time-to-peak calculations derived from an inverse logit curve fit.  ...  For the localizer method, voxels responding to the on/off block stimulus from the block-design localizer scan were applied across all runs. Then we computed an average signal for each hemisphere.  ...
