A Utopian mind starts with foc.us.
tDCS has the potential to improve — or more accurately to overclock — almost every aspect of your life
I built foc.us because I was frustrated that however much I read about tDCS there was no easy way to try it. Now there is.
The last time I played SNES … I had been stuck on the final boss for days. This time, after 10 minutes of tdcs and 45 minutes of intense focus (pun intended) I had beat the game!
a bit of science fiction turned science fact
Neuroscience Letters last year outlines how 33 individuals attempted to solve a logic puzzle with and without tDCS; 40 percent succeeding using stimulation and zero without it
