Abstract:

The objective evaluation of a subjects interest in specific information, such as education and training materials, for example, is made possible by using patterns of physiological activity generated in the brain. Samples of individual brain activity are obtained to assess whether an individual is paying attention and showing interest in certain materials. Effectiveness in presenting such materials would be improved when direct brain recording activity shows increased interest in the presented material.
