Energy transfer into the brains of soldiers to increase the focus is applied in the US

Research shows that the soldier received a slight electrical current runs through the brain to work more efficiently, and the ability to perform multiple tasks at the same time better.

A team of researchers recently announced the results of experiments mild electrical current runs through the military brain to improve the performance of their minds in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience In today 4/11.

The scientists used the technique direct current stimulation trans-skull (tDCS) on 20 members of the US Air Force. TDCS technique involves placing electrodes outside skull to use electric current stimulates the nerve cells in a specific brain region.

In the experiment lasted 36 minutes, half of the participants are transmitted continuously 2 mA current to the pre-frontal cortex, the left lumbar (IDLPFC), relating to the operation of the memory. The other half is stimulated only two minutes before the start of the study.

All 20 people then perform a task in order to test the ability to focus and take on multiple jobs at once theirs. The researchers ask the participants keep watching center in the center of a circular movement, while tracking other elements that appear on screen.

After a 4-minute test, the stimulated region start doing better IDLPFC remaining groups. Researchers pay special attention to evaluation data of the participants could handle at the time of their performance stability. The results showed that the technique is applied tDCS with data processing rate of 30% higher than the others.

“This proves that the technique can tDCS enhance multiple concurrent execution of work of the operator”, the researchers concluded.

However, though undiscovered side effects, but many neuroscientists worry that this technique can bring potential risk by interfering with power lines on a part of the brain can have consequences for the function overall awareness.
