Posted by Matt Brown in Cognition, Human Enhancement.

Yeah I know, I’ve heard all that magnet therapy crap before too and most of it is indeed crap.  But this story comes from a group at the University of British Columbia, not exactly a fringe group.  A study conducted by researchers there found that a magnetic pulse delivered to the premotor cortex improved the ability of the brain to learn a task and remember it.  Scientists are suggesting that this could be a step toward a “thinking cap.”
