Stress Hormone ‘Switch’ Could Improve Some Neurological Disorders

In reaction to a threat, our brains set off a chain of biochemical reactions that result in the release of cortisol — the body’s stress hormone — from the adrenal glands.

Can Electricity Shock Your Brain Into Learning Faster? It Works for the Air Force

One of the toughest things to teach Air Force pilots who guide unmanned attack drones is how to accurately spot targets in complex radar images. Researchers, however, have found a way to cut that lengthy training time in half.

Delivering a mild electrical current to pilots’ brains through EEG electrodes placed on the scalp — a process called transcranial direct current stimulation (TDCS) — can accelerate learning and improve pilot accuracy. In addition, that accuracy is sustained for up to 40 minutes, whereas it otherwise typically declines after 20 minutes.
