Augmented cognition (AugCog) is a research field at the frontier between human-computer interaction, psychology, ergonomics and neuroscience, that aims at creating revolutionary human-computer interactions. For instance, various research projects aim at evaluating in real-time the cognitive state of a user (e.g. from EEG), and design closed-loop systems to modulate information flow with respect to the user's cognitive capacity.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has an AugCog research program.
