tested the brightest minds of his generation

Hello everyone,

From the book Relaxercise by David Zemach-Bersin, Kaethe Zemach-Bersin and Mark Reese.

As a physicist, Feldenkrais was accustomed to solving problems that had tested the brightest minds of his generation. For many years he had been a close associate of French Nobel laureate physicist Frederic Joliet-Curie. Together they had conducted some of the very first experiments in atomic research. Could Feldenkrais apply his knowledge of physics and the human body to finding a way to regain the use of his legs?

Would it be correct to say that "had tested the brightest minds of his generation" means more or less the same as "had occupied the brightest minds"?

Thank you.
