A GROUP of Spanish and European scientists are carrying out a study into whether they can help groups work better at joint tasks by studying their brains.
The researchers from Russia, Germany, and the Polytechnic University of Madrid, have published their work in Frontiers in Neuroscience.
The study saw pairs grouped up and their brains connected up to a computer before receiving a set of images while their cognitive abilities were monitored. The partner who showed more cognitive fatigue received more straight-forward images while the one who had greater levels of concentration received more complex images. The research could help develop ways to share cognitive load between groups carrying out a common task.
