How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
I am a human factors and neuroergonomics researcher at French Civil Aviation University (Toulouse, France). My main research area is the fusion between psychotechnical tests and physiological measurements in order to assess cognitive abilities relevant for the selection of air traffic controllers.
This psychometric meta-analysis investigated the relation of cognitive and non-cognitive factors to the training success of Air Traffic Controllers by synthesizing 51 studies (N = 65,839). Cognitive factors were classified by Cattel-Horn-Carrol theory. Cognitive composite scores and work samples were also included. Non-cognitive factors consisted o...
The ability to react to unexpected auditory stimuli is critical in complex settings such as aircraft cockpits or air traffic control towers, characterized by high mental load and highly complex auditory environments (i.e., many different auditory alerts). Evidences show that both factors can negatively impact auditory attention and prevent appropri...
Of evolutionary importance, the ability to react to unexpected auditory stimuli remains critical today, especially in settings such as aircraft cockpits or air traffic control towers, characterized by high mental and auditory loads. Evidences show that both factors can negatively impact auditory attention and prevent appropriate reactions in hazard...
For pilots, the capacity to cope with anxiety is crucial during a flight since they may be confronted with stressful situations. According to the Big Five Inventory, this capacity can be modulated by two important personality traits: conscientiousness and neuroticism. The former would be related to concentration skills and the latter to the attenti...
The present research was aimed at investigating in a simulation experiment whether the initiation of a hostile project in an environment akin to airport security checkpoints would translate in variation of cardiac activity. Twenty-three participants (eight women) enrolled as mock passengers had to make several traverses of a security checkpoint whi...
In aviation, emotion and cognitive workload can considerably increase the probability of human error. An accurate online physiological monitoring of pilot's mental state could prevent accidents. The heart rate (HR) and heart rate variability (HRV) of 21 private pilots were analysed during two realistic flight simulator scenarios. Emotion was manipu...
