The research team used a brain-computer interface to manage the “arousal” of individuals while they were operating a plane in a flying computer simulator. The investigators had people wear EEG (electroencephalography) caps that monitored their brain waves. The caps could also generate neurofeedback signals to influence brain activity. While the people were flying the simulator, the system was coordinated to try to moderate their arousal levels during some of the more difficult maneuvers.
This is quite impressive, as this is a very early study of this technology and there’s certainly a huge potential to improve its capabilities.
