Mental state monitoring is of particular interest in safety-critical applications such as emergency braking situations during driving, where human performance is often limited due to inattentiveness, slow cognitive processing, motor inabilities or simply hesitation. The aim of the present study was to identify typical electrophysiological and behavioural markers already occurring prior to an emergency braking situation. These results might be important for driver assistance technologies which may be able to optimize reaction times in crucial situations based on the driver's mental states.
