Wired on diy transcranial cirect current brain stimulation

12 May

A piece by Greg Miller in Wired looks at the world of do it yourself transcranial cirect current brain stimulation.

“Williams is spreading the brain-zapping idea closer to home too. He has built brain stimulators for his wife (he couldn’t keep the secret very long) and several friends and acquaintances. All in all, he has persuaded at least a dozen people to give it a try. One says she’s gone off antidepressants for the first time in 20 years. Another says brain stimulation is helping him get his ADD under control. Several ambitious middle-­aged professionals say the devices have boosted their memory and focus.”

Here are my other posts on this topic. I am still not ready to attach electrodes to my skull, but I am intrigued.

Here’s a post on transcranial cirect current brain stimulation used to induce lucid dreaming.
