Learning new skills is what makes humans different and unique. But learning takes time, especially when it is learning a complex and apparently crucial skills like flying a jet. But a new research has opened new horizons that have the potential to change the course of history. Dr. Matthew Phillips and his team of investigators from HRL’s Information & System Sciences Laboratory have announced that they have tapped into a technology using which the leaning time space of humans could be reduced remarkably.
The research team used transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) which enhances the brain capabilities. How? Well, when we learn a new thing, certain areas of our brain are used. The scientists connected a headset with the brain, used a special gel to send, receive and track special brain signals. This headset infused in a surge in the learning power. This technology is called Neurostimulation. It used Neuroplasticity, the learning capability of humans to connect neurons in the brain, as its driving force.
Scientists found out that using this technology, a novice could learn how to fly a jet 33 times faster than normal. Watch this video to have a detailed look at this technology.
