EUROCONTROL Webinar - Mental Underload…what it is and what it isn`t.


All Day

Event Type

This webinar will offer an insight into the concept of mental underload – what it is (as far as we are able to define it), what it isn’t, how it compares to related concepts (such as boredom or vigilance), what causes it, how and why it affects performance, how to measure it (as far as we are able to), and how to guard against it.  Transport case studies are given as examples of where underload has caused accidents.


With Mark Young, Professor of Human Factors at the University of Southampton.


25 June 15:00-16:30 CEST
