The ‘mental game’ of sports, performance, and learning reaches new levels through EEG-based brain mapping techniques. By understanding the biological differences between expert and novice cognitive states during performance, teachers can teach better and students can learn faster.
Whereas as traditional coaching and expert observation assessments identify mistakes when they are made, EEG-based measures provide insights as to why they occurred.
EEG-based cognitive assessment of surgeons may aid in defining levels of expertise performing complex surgical tasks once competence is achieved. The B-Alert cognitive state metrics may be used as an adjunct to the traditional methods for skill assessment during RAS.
