Findings allow for the development of an autonomously updating brain-machine interface, which is able to improve on its own by learning about its subject without additional programming. The system could help develop new robotic prosthetics, which can perform more naturally.
The effects of schedule autonomy on creative performance are dependent upon a person's level of impulsivity. The more impulsive a person is, the more creative they are. The reverse is true for those who are more controlled.
