In brief: Yes

There are devices that can measure brain performance to a certain extent.
For example, eegs are used to measure brain activity. Electrodes placed on the scalp detect the underlying electrical activity. Functional brain mris can detect certain areas that " light up" as they control areas for movement, speech generation, thought generation.
