Jean Vettel: Army Research Lab Performs Brain Science Studies to Forecast Soldier Activity

BrainMapAn Army Research Laboratory team has conducted research on brain sciences in an effort to establish a database on brain patterns to help forecast how soldiers respond in a proactive and reactive state.

The U.S. Army said Monday Jean Vettel, an ARL neuroscientist, has performed experiments with an electroencephalogram that registers voltage fluctuations in different parts of the brain to monitor brain activity through sensors placed on a person’s head.

“Researchers are beginning to use the database they have developed based on their experiments to predict both types of driving performance,” the Army notice states.

Researchers work to use non-invasive sensors monitor soldiers all day while performing a variety of tasks to collect more information for the team’s database.

The Army says future experiments might involve sleep deprivation or fatigue on the simulator as well as brain activity monitoring of soldiers on patrol.
