Transcranial random noise stimulation (TRNS) for Enhancing Math Skills and Other

If you are poor in math and calculation, don't worry! Scientists have found a new method to improve your mathematical skills as well.

It is about Transcranial random noise stimulation (TRNS). Yes, according to scientists, if they target these electrical stimulations to parts of the brain that are actually responsible for manipulating numbers, then in future a number of students and adults could be helped out.

Researchers studied this type of brain stimulation on a group of students and found that in less than a week's time, it is capable of improving their performance in terms of calculation as well as rote learning of mathematical tasks.

Though, this research was carried out on a small scale and was an early-stage one seeking a few more examinations in future, but according to researchers it would surely help people with learning problems or neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson's or Alzheimer's.

They said, it would also help people acquire their full potential in math and other tricky subjects.

To carry out this study, around 51 students from Oxford were asked to perform two arithmetic tasks. This study continued for a five day period. The main aim was to test their calculation and rote learning abilities. Among the group, on every day basis, half students were given TRNS while performing the tasks.
