HRL Laboratories : HRL Demonstrates the Potential to Enhance the Human Intellect’s Existing Capacity to Learn New Skills
[["We measured the brain activity patterns of six commercial and military pilots, and then transmitted these patterns into novice subjects as they learned to pilot an airplane in a realistic flight simulator" -- Dr. Matthew Phillips & team used transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) in order to improve learning and skill retention.

subjects who received brain stimulation via electrode-embedded head caps improved their piloting abilities.

"As we discover more about optimizing, personalizing, and adapting brain stimulation protocols, we'll likely see these technologies become routine in training and classroom environments,"]]

(2012) Brain Implant Improves Thinking in Monkeys - The New York Times
[[To test the device, the team relayed this “correct” signal into the monkeys’ brains when they were in the middle of choosing a possible picture match, and it improved their performance by about 10 percent.

The researchers then impaired the monkeys’ performance deliberately, by dosing them with cocaine. Their scores promptly fell by 20 percent.

“But when you turn on the stimulator, they don’t make those errors; in fact, they do a little better than normal”]]
