Zapping the Brain Improves Math Skills


By applying electrical current to the brain, researchers can enhance a person's mathematical ability for up to six months.



While the Oxford scientists don't advocate plugging yourself into a wall socket, they do eventually hope to create a device that will provide an appropriate amount of electrical current to the brain, and have filed a patent on such a device


wonderful news eh?

i don't suppose Oxford is up to explaining why i haven't uppe'd the ante' on the theory of realitivy at this point in my carear....

TWH, I don't need any help turning my spieling into carp laugh

Meanwhile .... to steal a line from another forum .... if priests are defrocked and lawyers disbarred, are electricians delighted?
