Education for many serves as the primary pathway to a better more prosperous life, but what happens when emerging technology changes how we learn and acquire new skills? Imagine a world where you could learn how to play the piano, pitch the perfect fastball or operate a new piece of complex machinery by simply having the information uploaded to your brain. Researchers at Boston University and the Computational Neuroscience Laboratories in Kyoto Japan, have demonstrated the ability for an individual to; “learn high-performance tasks with little or no conscious effort”. It’s called Decoded Neurofeedback or DecNef and according to its developers it could represent a paradigm shift education and training. By leveraging the power of fMRI researchers were able to; ” use decoded functional magnetic resonance imaging to induce brain activity patterns to match a previously known target state and thereby improve performance on visual tasks. Think of a person watching a computer screen and having his or her brain patterns modified to match those of a high-performing athlete or modified to recuperate from an accident or disease.” (Science Daily) This research many believe could lead to the development of automated learning techniques that could fundamentally change the nature of education and training.
