The whole experience is documented in this video.

“We know there are limitations to human performance. We hope to create more robust technologies to monitor cognitive states that might affect pilots.” – Santosh Mathan

The implications for this technology are truly unknown as typically prototypes such as these spill into other applications. Santosh and Honeywell Aerospace are thinking more toward monitoring pilots’ neural activity and performance. We could see this supplementing certain elements of air piloting in some distant future or being used in other spheres of society starting with travel.

We enjoy seeing technology such as this, as it brings notoriety to EEG neurofeedback and the neuropsychological work we believe in.

What Clients Say About Us

Julie W.
Teachers made huge comments on his math skills and behavior. I also saw this at home with understanding of what I said to him registering more with him. I saw this in his eyes: recognition. Fewer outbursts of anger.

Anita M.
I am extremely happy with my son’s outcomes and feel very fortunate to have encountered Dr. Bonesteel early in my child’s life. This method has dramatically changed his ability to focus and take initiative. I feel confident that my son’s life has been dramatically enhanced. I can’t express my appreciation fully in words.

Mary B.
Dr. Bonesteel has masterfully, compassionately, and extremely kindly helped me navigate through a history of childhood and marital abuse, a child with twenty years of struggle with life-threatening physical and emotional illness, extended family discord, and disharmony with my child with severe depression. I am blessed to have found Neurohealth Associates.
