    Augmented Cognition: A Practitioner’s Guide represents the first comprehensive publication dedicated to formalizing the study and practice of augmented cognition. The Practitioner's Guide is built on the collective efforts of hundreds of dedicated scientists and engineers who worked diligently over the past decade to establish the science, tools, and technologies that comprise the field of augmented cognition.


    Through a closed-loop system that senses a multitude of brain states, augmented cognition aims to adapt to users in real time, providing a true symbiosis between the human and computational systems. 

    This guide pulls together a vast array of information into a single source and provides valuable advice on how to study and practice in this field successfully. The guide can serve equally well as a reference for the seasoned expert in the field of augmented cognition or as a primer for anyone eager to join this emerging field of study. Whether you're an engineer seeking to understand how best to select and integrate brain sensors, a psychologist designing adaptive strategies to enhance human performance, or a professor seeking to provide an overview of field practices, Augmented Cognition: A Practitioner’s Guide offers you a comprehensive, up-to-date, practical introduction to the field of augmented cognition
