Improve Your Math Skills...with Electrodes

Roi Cohen Kadosh of Oxford University's experimental psychology lab is sending low-dose electric currents through experimental subjects' brains to see if the stimulation makes them better at math.

The technique Kadosh uses, transcranial electrical stimulation (tES), is non-invasive. His studies indicate that tES improves learning speed on math tasks in adults who don't struggle with the subject. Preliminary results lead Kadosh to suspect that tES can also help those who suffer from developmental dyscalculia.
