Zapping Their Brains at Home with DIY Brain Stimulation
Marlene Breverman stashed this in Neurology DIY
EARLIER this month, in the journal Annals of Neurology, four neuroscientists published an open letter to practitioners of do-it-yourself brain stimulation. These are people who stimulate their own brains with low levels of electricity, largely for purposes like improved memory or learning ability. The letter, which was signed by 39 other researchers, outlined what is known and unknown about the safety of such noninvasive brain stimulation, and asked users to give careful consideration to the risks.
Should we be encouraging people to zap their brains at home?
Maybe with a cup of coffee or two, but that's all.
Totally agree with you Marlene.
