In this presentation, we set out to describe the impact of working a computer and the impairment of computer-workers from the work physiological view point. Attentional phenomena will be classified and discussed from the standpoint of higher nervous functions. We analyse the physiological basis of visual attention required for the operation of computers by the electrophysiological methods of brain waves, and the auditory evoked response of the electroencephalogram. The VDT work-load as an example of computer-work will be made clear by an analysis of a physiological performance test and of the neurochemical substances in the urine of the workers.
