According to Kurweilai, a novice pilot can improve its flying skills by having their "brains zapped" with the "recorded brain patterns of experienced pilots" using transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). The result showed that the technology has the potential to "increase learning" making "this form of accelerated learning commonplace."

The study, published in an open-access paper in the February 2016 issue of the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, found that novice pilots who received brain stimulation via electrode-embedded head caps improved their piloting abilities, with a 33 percent increase in skill consistency, compared to those who received sham stimulation. “We measured the average g-force of the plane during the simulated landing and compared it to control subjects who received a mock brain stimulation,” says Phillips.
