RESILIENCE relates to safety and security, for example the ability to be able to carry out tasks for a long duration. This requires vigilance (or sustained attention), and the ability to deal with a high workload is also crucial. These aspects can very well be studied by using the EEG, as changes in EEG activity can be observed that may predict human error (1), and the increased workload of a more demanding task is also reflected in changed EEG activities (2,3).
