The Cognition and Neuroergonomics Collaborative Technology Alliance (CaN CTA) is the U.S. Army’s flagship basic science research and technology transition program in the Neuroergonomics. Recent progress in the neurosciences has greatly advanced our knowledge of how brain function underlies behavior, providing the modern foundations for understanding how we sense, perceive, and interact with the world. These understandings, if properly leveraged, have the potential to provide revolutionary advances, fostering practical solutions to address Army needs. The CaN CTA has made advances in portable, user acceptable, sensor systems that enable holistic monitoring of brain and body in realistic settings. Data collections have produced an unprecedented body of holistic data from naturalistic experiment paradigms, which we use to contribute to robust modeling of brain processes across individuals. The CaN CTA has also made advances in innovative computational methods such as machine learning to take advantage of the large scale, high dimensional data that is being produced.​
