U.S. Army scientists explore human brain potential to integrate into future military technology
The U.S. Army CCDC Army Research Laboratory has announced that Army scientists explore the potential of cognitive mechanism to integrate into future military technology.
A group of Army scientists are working to map out the cognitive mechanisms of the human system to seamlessly integrate future military technology into the daily lives of Soldiers.
These scientists, from the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command’s Army Research Laboratory, are not only trying to make life easier in the combat arena — they are working to save lives.
One of these scientists, Dr. Chloe Callahan-Flintoft, is from the lab’s Human Research and Engineering Directorate and is a contributing author and researcher of a study originally published in bioRxiv Aug. 31, 2018 (see related links below). Psychological Review is also reviewing the paper for publication.
Callahan-Flintoft received her bachelor of science in math and psychology at Trinity College Dublin. She then went on to get her master of science statistics at Baruch College – City University of New York.
She primarily based her work off of research accomplished with her graduate advisor at Pennsylvania State University while getting her doctorate in psychology. A National Science Foundation grant mostly funded the research.
Callahan-Flintoft now works with the Army through an Oak Ridge Associated Universities Fellowship; however, she is preparing to make the leap and join the lab’s scientific research community full-time.
