Brain-Zapping Gadgets, It's a unique technology. Few year's ago, the concept of electrically re-freshening people's brain in the comfort of their own home would have sounded weird, and probably like an inferior idea.
It is an easy-to-pull-off technique called as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS)—has rapidly strengthened from labs to living rooms.
On August 28, a group of manufacturers and neuroscientists met in NewYork to examine the possible regulations for brain stimulation devices. After the meeting, they had sold their products to the respective consumers.
The team acknowledged on Sunday to recommend guidelines to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which sets rules for medical devices.
Neuroscientists are evaluating tDCS’s effects on every neural and psychological disorder and are also exploring its effects on cognition, emotion, and behavior.
