Advances in engineering and science have made it possible to develop technologies to enhance human performance across a range of tasks, situations and domains. These capabilities emphasize a range of different approaches for influencing performance, extending from those that target long-term changes in knowledge and behavior to those that supplement and enhance operator behavior in real time. Because there are so many different options, it is important to understand the different underlying processes each affects, to explore the mechanisms through which these tools work, and to develop policies for effectively using them.
The journal Technology is a forum for presentation of information encompassing essentially the entire field of applied sciences. Owing to the broad nature of applied sciences, authors should be guided by the interest of the readers who are likely to be knowledgeable non-specialists.
