Summary: 
The brain processes numerous information related to traffic scenes for appropriate perception, judgment, and operation in vehicle driving. Here, the strategy for perception, judgment, and operation is individually different for each driver, and this difference is thought to be arise from experience of driving. In the present work, we measure and analyze human brain activity (EEG: Electroencephalogram) related to visual perception during vehicle driving to clarify the relationship between experience of driving and brain activity. As a result, more experts generate α activities than beginners, and also confirm that the β activities is reduced than beginners. These results firstly indicate that experience of driving is reflected into the activation pattern of EEG.
