Not quite sure what to make of this one, but some new research is suggesting that electrical current applied to your head in a certain manner can improve math skills for up to 6 months. The study also found that changing the flow of the current can actually harm math skills in a similar manner. It sounds like the research is still pretty early, but various researchers are apparently getting pretty excited about being able to "stimulate" brain activity in various ways with electrical currents. Does this mean that we're now going to start reading about electrical "doping" scandals at the next mathletes contests?
