Hooking a 9-Volt Battery To Your Brain Improves Your Video Game Skills, Researcher Finds | Popular Science

We’ve already seen how magnets hovering close to a person’s head can affect speech, behavior and learning patterns. Now it appears zapping your brain with a 9-volt battery will make you better at video games, at least according to one researcher. Don’t try this yourself, though.

Neuroscientists at the University of New Mexico asked volunteers to play a video game called “DARWARS Ambush!”, developed to help train American military personnel. Half of the players received 2 milliamps of electricity to the scalp, using a device powered by a simple 9-volt battery, and they played twice as well as those receiving a much tinier jolt. The DARPA-funded study suggests direct current applied to the brain could improve learning.

This type of brain stimulation, called transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), is controversial but could show promise for treatment of various neurological disorders and cognitive impairments.

This suggests to me that those nuts talking about Ormus (otherwise known as colloidal gold) actually might be right… If adding electricity into the brain enhances its functions, it would make sense that adding conductive material may achieve the same goal.
