Towards a conceptual framework for cognitive probing

Cognitive probing combines the ability of computers to interpret ongoing measures of arbitrary brain activity, with the ability of those same computers to actively elicit cognitive responses from their users. Purposefully elicited responses can be interpreted in order to learn about the user, enable symbiotic and implicit interaction, and support neuroadaptive technology. We propose a working definition of cognitive probing that allows it to be generalised across different applications and disciplines.
