The operational characteristics of functional optical brain were investigated using near-infrared during cognitive tasks. A symbiotic relation between operator and operational environment can be realized by an advanced computing platform designed to adapt to cognitive and physiological state of user. The experimental protocol used a complex task, resembling a video game, called the Warship Commander Task (WCT). The WCT was designed to approximate naval air warfare management. The functional near-infrared (fNIR) data analysis explored relations among cognitive workload, participant's performance and effect of divided attention as manipulated by secondary component of WCT.
