An examination saved by a U.S. troops meant to whet soldiers’ minds for a terrain has found a approach to urge memory: by zapping subjects’ smarts with little bursts of electricity during sleep.
In a multi-year investigate during a University of New Mexico, volunteers perceived a fragment of 9-volt battery’s value of electrical kick to their scalps while they slept during a lab. When they woke up, they were asked to play a video diversion they had schooled a day before. Turns out that subjects were significantly improved during it after a night spent in a lab.
In part 6 of Future You, we try a experiment, and cruise a implications for a future: What will it meant when we can learn faster and remember improved simply by zapping a brains? And what if someone can overwrite a memory and manipulate what’s real?
