Abstract

Abstract. Training is needed to exercise our most important organ: the brain, exploit its full potential and sustain it for our later years. Does a gap exist in our capacity for learning, a gap between what our brain could potentially achieve and what we are currently prepared to accept? The ‘prototype’ follows an ambitious undergraduate Computer Science student as he gets drawn into psycho-physiological experiments that explore brain-training, involving image recogni-tion, cognition, subliminal delivery, and imagined movement. Such technology has great potential for promoting and assessing learning and possibly exploring under performance or dysfunctional learning. However, as with all technology that enhances the human, there is potential for unintended use that we should be mindful of.
