Abstract

This chapter describes a second-order adaptive network model for mental processes making use of shared mental models (SMM) for team performance. The chapter illustrates on the one hand the value of adequate SMM’s for safe and efficient team performance and on the other hand in cases of imperfections of such shared team models how this complicates the team performance. To this end, the adaptive network model covers use, adaptation and control of the shared mental model. It is illustrated for an application context of a medical team performing a tracheal intubation, executed by a nurse and a medical specialist. Simulations illustrate how the adaptive network model is able to address the type of complications that can occur in realistic scenarios.
