Abstract : During 1975-76, 64 student pilots of the Hellenic Airforce Air Academy were studied with EEGraphic protocol including activation procedures. In 13 of them, abnormal encephalographic abnormal EEGs were involved in 10 aircraft accidents due to pilot error, while only 3 pilots of the 51 with normal EEG were involved in 4 accidents due to pilot error. Electroencephalograms (EEGs) have been used since World War Two as a useful auxiliary tool for the selection and evaluation of pilots. (js)
