Performance Council Workshop that took place recently at
Kent State University.

Researchers from companies and universities across Ohio participated in a Human Performance Council Workshop on “New Frontiers in Human Performance” held at the Kent Student Center on Feb. 28. The event was sponsored by Kent State University and Case Western Reserve University.

Participants shared critical paths in research and discussed potential collaborations in such areas as sensors and sensor systems, fMRI/cognitive modeling, home and wireless monitoring, metabolic and exercise performance.

“It’s exciting to see such a good turnout and representation from multiple organizations and institutions,” says Matt Apanius, director of the SMART Center for Microsystems at Lorain County Community College.  “We’re focused on leveraging these resources to make this region a place of interest to not only conduct world-class research but also develop and grow businesses in human performance.”

The Human Performance Council was established as a forum of Northeast Ohio research organizations to explore models for complex human systems, human performance sustainment or protection at the limits of performance, and predicting and influencing behavioral responses to environmental stress.
