Can Electricity Stimulate Your Brain To Work Faster?

A widely-used ‘brain stimulation’ tool has no effect on the speed of the brain’s responses, according to a new study from Australian neuroscientists Jared Horvath et al.

The technique of transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) involves attaching electrodes to the scalp and applying a weak electrical current. This current is thought to flow through the brain and alter neural activity in areas close to the electrodes. tDCS is a popular experimental method in neuroscience, and there’s a
