The increased use of sensing systems and large scale networked nodes with a variety of embedded sensors and imagery is creating a plethora of varied data that needs to be fused and interpreted for applications such as surveillance, reconnaissance, and air traffic controls. The need for persistent human analysis with high levels of proficiency is taxing human resources and cognitive abilities. In this work, we propose to use measurements of physiology in a feedback control system to maintain dynamic brain information processing capabilities with a small head mounted transcranial direct current stimulation system.
