Zapping Your Brain Improves Verbal Skills

New research has found that running a mild electric current through your brain can significantly boost your verbal skills, with no side-effects, as far as anyone knows so far. Very interesting. It appears to decrease the firing threshold of neurons in the path of the current. This research was applied mainly to the frontal lobe of the brain. I wonder what it might do to other brain regions? Fascinating discovery.

    Source says “two thousandths of an ampere”, i.e. 0.002, not 20. 20 amperes will probably kill you (and/or your readers)
    — EDITORS’ COMMENT: Thanks VD — good point — I’ve corrected that in my post.
