The Matrix, researchers at
Laboratories have developed a program which they say can upload
new skills and knowledge directly to your brain.
The California-based institution analyzed electrical signals in the
brain of a pilot and fed the data to people who didn't have the
knowledge to fly planes via electrode-embedded head caps which
stimulated the correct regions of the brain.
The participants who were fed the information via electrodes were
then pitted against a placebo group on a realistic flight simulation
test, which found that the former performed an average of 33 per
cent better than the latter, according to the results published in
the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience (Transcranial
Direct Current Stimulation Modulates Neuronal Activity and Learning
in Pilot Training.)
Lead author Dr Matthew Phillips explained:
"Our system is one of the
first of its kind. It's a brain stimulation system.
"It sounds kind of sci-fi, but there's large scientific basis for
the development of our system. The specific task we were looking at was piloting an aircraft,
which requires a synergy of both cognitive and motor performance.
"When you learn something, your brain physically changes.
Connections are made and strengthened in a process called neuro-plasticity.
"It turns out that certain functions of the brain, like
speech and memory, are located in very specific regions of the
brain, about the size of your pinky."
He added that this could be the future of learning:
"What our system
does is it actually targets those changes to specific regions of the
brain as you learn.

scientific investigation of these methods started in the early 2000s
and we're building on that research to target and personalize a
stimulation in the most effective way possible.
"Your brain is going to be very different to my brain when we
perform a task.
"What we found is… brain stimulation
seems to be particularly effective at actually improving
