In mid-February, Science GRO staff sat in on the meeting of the Committee on Human-Systems Integration (formerly known as the Committee on Human Factors) for briefs on cutting-edge research in areas ranging from medical error to augmented cognition and military training. In particular, the expertise and work of the Committee will inform APA's congressional advocacy on behalf of psychological research within the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security for Fiscal Year 2010.
