||The aim of this report presented in 2 parts was to investigate objective, physiological changes which occur in the human body when subjected to stressors at work, such as working with a video display unit (VDU), and to correlate these objective measures with psychophysical data collected simultaneously on the speed and accuracy of performance responses. The investigated subjects (7 in the first part of the report and 29 in the second) worked either with a VDU and keyboard or with pencil and paper on specific closely defined tasks. Coverage: methodology (psychophysical tests, electrophysiological measurements); observer data; protocols; results; trainee VDU operator study.
