Emerging technologies are contributing towards new developments in various branches of science, be it drug discovery or faster disease detection. The field of neuroscience is also reaping the benefits of modern technology as a graduate of the Berkeley SkyDeck accelerator program, Humm, has created a new device that claims to improve your working memory.
Back in April, a study published in the scientific journal Nature Neuroscience found some fascinating results. Under the study, a mild electric stimulation was applied to 70 year old participants and their performance in certain memory tasks was noted to be on par with 20-year-olds. It was conducted by researchers from Boston University.
