Monitoring EEG Brain Activity to Personalize Memory Training

Sandia shows monitoring brain activity during study can help predict test performance (press release):

“The team monitored test subjects’ brain activity while they studied word lists, then used the EEG (electroencephalography) to predict who would remember the most information. Because researchers knew the average percentage of correct answers under various conditions, they had a baseline of what brain activity looked like for good and poor memory performance. The computer model predicted five of 23 people tested would perform best. The model was correct: They remembered 72 percent of the words on average, compared to 45 percent for everyone else…The study, funded under Sandia’s Laboratory Directed Research and Development program (LDRD), had two parts: predicting how well someone will remember what’s studied and predicting who will benefit most from memory training.”
