The purpose of this paper is to clarify the brain activities of human beings engaged in their tasks. Response time, correctness ratios, and Event Related Potentials (ERPs) are useful indexes of the brain activities of a subject at his task in the experiments. We analyze these indexes by a method called the Principle Component Analysis. Then we characterize the brain activities while he is engaged in the task. Finally we discuss the effectiveness of feedback control in a HCI system using these indexes.
