Understanding human performance during mental and physical tasks

ANN ARBOR, Mich.—New research at the University of Michigan School of Kinesiology will examine the relationship between human cognition and locomotion, thanks to a recently announced $25 million grant awarded to Virginia-based DCS Corp. by the Army Research Laboratory.

Under the five-year contract, DCS and a five-school consortium that includes Michigan's School of Kinesiology, will establish and operate a collaborative technology alliance in cognition and neuroergonomics. The project will examine human performance in complex military environments but the results will also be able to be applied to civilian contexts.
