setts Institute of Technology. She performs research in collaborative human–computer decision making for command and control domains and is a recognized expert in the area of human superviory control. Dr. Cummings graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy with a B.S. in mathematics in 1988. She received an M.S. in space systems engineering from the Naval Postgraduate School in 1994 and a Ph.D. in systems engineering from the University of Virginia in 2003. Dr. Cummings served as a naval officer from 1988 to 1999 and was among the first female fighter pilots in the Navy.
J. Mark Davis is professor and director of the Psychoneuroimmunology, Exercise and Nutrition Laboratory in the Division of Applied Physiology within the Department of Exercise Science at the University of South Carolina. He has published over 110 peer-reviewed articles of relevance to soldier nutrition, physical training, and mental/physical performance, including “Possible mechanisms of central nervous system fatigue during exercise” and “Effects of branched-chain amino acids and carbohydrate on fatigue during intermittent, high-intensity running.” He earned a Ph.D. from Purdue University and a B.S. from California Polytech in San Luis Obispo.
Michael S. Gazzaniga (IOM) is the first director of the Sage Center for the Study of Mind at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He is past director of the Center for Neuroscience at the University of California, Davis. Through his extensive work with split-brain patients, Dr. Gazzaniga has made important advances in our understanding of functional lateralization in the human brain and of how the cerebral hemispheres communicate with one another. His research is well known in both clinical and basic science circles, and he has written several highly acclaimed books, including the landmark 1995, 2000, and 2004 editions of The Cognitive Neurosciences, which is recognized as the sourcebook in the field. Dr. Gazzaniga is the president of the Cognitive Neuroscience Institute, which he founded, and is the editor in chief emeritus of the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience. Dr. Gazzaniga was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He is the elected president of the American Psychological Society, and he also serves on the President’s Council on Bioethics. He received a Ph.D. in psychobiology from the California Institute of Technology. He will be delivering the Gifford Lectures at the University of Edinburgh in 2009.
Richard J. Genik, II, is director of the Emergent Technology Research Division and research assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences at Wayne State University. Among his many areas of expertise are the use of magnetic resonance imaging and the use of fMRI to measure cognitive workload in naturalistic, multitasking environments. Dr. Genik has 131 peer-reviewed publications, including “Watching people think” and “Scientific methods that may predict behaviors,” which appeared in Biotechnology Trends Relevant to Warfare Initiatives in 2005. He has a Ph.D. in physics from Michigan State University and a B.S. in applied physics from Wayne State University.
