Army-Supported Research Tackles Brain Signal Separation for Potential Military Applications

Warfighter Behavior

U.S. Army-funded research has demonstrated the isolation of brain signals that help to determine a warfighter's motion and behavior. In support of this goal, U.S. Army Research Office funded a project that used algorithms to separate behavior-relevant brain signals from those that are not. The Army seeks technology that transmits information to a soldier's brain so that he may take preemptive action before an incident occurs.
