A Research Agenda for Neuroactivities in Construction Safety Knowledge Sharing, Hazard Identification and Decision Making
Neuroscience is often associated with psychology or medical studies. In this research, we propose a research agenda for studying neuroactivities during construction knowledge sharing and hazard identification via a neuroscience tool such as fNIRS. It explores the different regions of the brain which may involve hazard decision making. Processing executive functions, for example, attention, memory and planning tasks are connected to the prefrontal cortex activation. As per the neural efficiency hypothesis, individuals with higher intelligence test scores exhibit less neural activity when they perform a complicated task. The temporal lobes contain many substructures, with functions such as perception, object recognition, memory acquisition, language understanding, and emotional reactions.
