||Mental workload at work is an issue that is attracting increasing attention. This article briefly describes the various approaches that enable an evaluation of the effects of mental workload, with emphasis on neuropsychological methods (electroencephalograms, measurement of electrical voltage response to events, pupillometry, pulse rate analysis), parameters for evaluating how stress occurs and various psychological tests (JCQ, ERI, TICS, FIT). The quantitative evaluation of mental workload at work involves interdisciplinary collaboration between the medical, scientific and occupational psychology fields to develop models that highlight causal relationships between the various parameters so as to enable the development of analytical methods that result in reliable data.
