Project Description

Neurofeedback gets you back in the zone. Researchers from Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Sciences have shown that they can use neurofeedback to modify an individual’s arousal state to improve performance in a demanding sensory-motor task, such as flying a plane or driving in suboptimal conditions.

“Our work shows that we can use feedback generated from our own brain activity to shift our arousal state in ways that significantly improve our performance in difficult tasks — so we can hit that home run or land on a carrier deck without crashing.” Paul Sajda, professor of biomedical engineering (BME)
