Strapping electrodes to your head and running a small amount of electrical current through it can actually help your brain perform better, according to a growing body of scientific evidence. Continue reading… “The future of therapy: DIY brain shocking?”
Transcranial direct current stimulation can make your brain work better. DARPA proved it can make you better at video games, the U.S. Air Force has shown it cuts drone remote-pilot training in half, and Harvard researchers have used it to treat depression. So what is this magical device that powerfully manipulates your brain function and where can you get one?
It’s not much more than a battery and a bunch of wires. In fact, you could actually make it yourself…
Mild noninvasive electrical current to brain could help stroke patients
A simple, inexpensive device that delivers electrical current to the brain noninvasively could help stroke patients recover lost motor ability. According to a new study, the treatment–transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS)–in combination with occupational therapy boosted recovery better than either treatment on its own.
