A team from HRL Laboratories has developed a technique using electrical brain stimulation that enhances learning. The research, published in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, showed that stimulation was able to improve skill learning and retention among novice trainee pilots.


Results showed that those receiving the stimulation saw a greater improvement in their piloting ability, compared with a control group. “We measured the average G-force of the plane during the simulated landing and compared it to control subjects who received a mock brain stimulation,” explained Phillips.
