Why electronic brain stimulation is trending right now


There seems to be no end to the benefits of electronic brain stimulation. Focused thinking, better memory, deeper sleep, relief from depression, reduced stress are among some of the benefits you read about on the internet. In particular, a technique called transcranial direct current stimulation is getting loads of attention from early adopters who rave about its potential and scientists who are trying to unravel what it can and cannot do.

Deep brain stimulation beats out caffeine for boosting mental agility



“Transcranial direct current stimulation” (tDCS) involves passing electricity through your head. The current is relatively weak, so it’s not like the electro-convulsive therapy (ECT) used to treat extreme depression in mental institutions; sometimes called “deep brain stimulation.”

Electrical stimulation to the brain speeds up learning


Air Force operator receiving transcranial direct current stimulation (TDCS) to accelerate learning.

By running a mild electric current through the brains of pilots during lessons, Air Force researchers have cut their personnel’s learning time in half.  Pilots were being taught how to identify targets using drones—the practice is increasingly important to modern warfare and one which, due to its difficulty, is holding back the deployment of drones. Caffeine and other stimulants have been tested to aid learning but none work as well as two milliamperes of direct current for 30 minutes to pilot’s brains during training sessions on video simulators.
