New research in humans demonstrates the potential to improve memory with a non-invasive brain stimulation technique.

You can directly improve cognitive performance simply by wearing a brain stimulation device while you work, with no additional meditation or special diets. Such devices target the part of the brain with electricity to help concentration and learn new skills. They use a targeted current to make a small boost to certain brainwaves.”

The technology is based on a new form of non-invasive brain stimulation, a field with more than 20 years of clinical research and a strong track record for safety. Previously, it has been used to treat such conditions as depression and insomnia, but recently it has been found to provide cognitive benefits, too.

A brain stimulation device creates small electrical signals that amplify brainwave patterns, and it is similar to technology that the U.S. military, Olympic athletes and leading labs such as the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) and Harvard use.

The technology represents a significant step forward, allowing the user to directly improve the performance of the brain in a highly targeted way, without the side effects of popular alternatives like caffeine or nootropics.
