Stress, Cognition, and Human Performance: A Literature Review and Conceptual Framework  (2004)
Abstract Header
The following literature review addresses the effects of various stressors
on cognition. While attempting to be as inclusive as possible, the review
focuses its examination on the relationships between cognitive appraisal,
attention, memory, and stress as they relate to information processing and
human performance. The review begins with an overview of constructs and
theoretical perspectives followed by an examination of effects across
attention, memory, perceptual-motor functions, judgment and decision making,
putative stressors such as workload, thermals, noise, and fatigue and closes
with a discussion of moderating variables and related topics. In summation
of the review, a conceptual framework for cognitive process under stress has
been assembled.
