Taking the red pill: Researchers develop ‘Matrix’-style brain stimulator that instantly teaches skil

Researchers exploring the world of neuroscience are venturing deep down the rabbit hole, creating what they claim is a new brain stimulator that can instantly improve an individual’s ability to learn new skills. The startling news comes from HRL Laboratories, which compared the new device to technology depicted in the movie “The Matrix” that showed highly advanced software instantly teaching the character Neo advanced martial arts. In this case, they sought to transfer the skills of a professional airplane pilot to those who did not know how to fly a plane. Published this month in the journal Frontiers of Human Neuroscience, the research found that “low-current electrical brain stimulation can modulate the learning of complex real-world skills.” Researchers led by Dr. Matthew Phillips analyzed the brain activity patterns…
