Abstract : The research literature related to stress, personality measurements, electrical and magnetic measurements of brain activity, and stress task-protocols was reviewed to determine whether measurements of brain activity can be used to predict job performance under conditions of stress. Results indicated that brain activity measurements show great promise for predicting general response-tendencies of individuals when subjected to stress and as an investigative method for learning more about brain function. Recommendations were made for a research protocol for ascertaining whether measurements of brain activity can be used to predict job performance under stress.
