Electrical brain stimulation improves math skills - life - 04 November 2010 - New Scientist: "After each session, which involved hundreds of such calculations, they were given tests to see how well they could perform mathematical calculations using the symbols. Those given tDCS learned the symbols faster and did better in the tests than those subjected to a sham procedure.
When the subjects were tested six months later, those who had been given tDCS still did better than those who hadn't. 'It is already known that tDCS affects neurotransmitters involved in learning, memory and plasticity, so we presume that these are being manipulated in this study to cause long-term changes in the brain,' says Cohen Kadosh."
