Stimulate the brain electrically- improve memory

Michal Kucewicz from Mayo clinic and fellow researchers discovered that low-intensity stimulations of the lateral temporal cortex of the brain significantly improved word recall. While electrical stimulation is beginning to emerge as a potential treatment for a variety of neurological disorders, this is the first time that improvement in memory processes was shown. This opens up an avenue to develop memory enhancement stimulation devices to treat deficits in cognition and memory.
