Wow Apparently “electrocuted” can make us better at math
Certainly not electrocuted by high voltage. According to researchers at Oxford University, by passing an electric current to the brain could make a LITTLE younger we learn mathematics.
They found that by pointing to the part of the brain called lobes parialis can improve the ability of volunteers to solve numerical problems.
They hope that this discovery can help those who have problems with other diskaklkulia said, the effects of electricity to other brain functions will be checked.
The findings, reported in the journal Current Biology.

Several studies have shown that one in five people have trouble with math, not only affects their ability to solve problems but also to manage the day-to-day activities such as telling the time and managing money.
Neuroscientists believe that activity in the parietal lobe plays an important role in this ability, or the lack of it.
When the magnetic field was first used to disrupt brain activity, the volunteers with dyscalculia impaired in terms of counting.
Recent research a step further, by using 1 miliamp to stimulate the lobes paretialis on some students.
This can not be felt and do not interfere with other brain functions.
And when turned on, they are trying to solve puzzles given symbol.
When it flowed from right to left of the volunteers can more quickly solve the puzzle than those who were not given voltage. As with those who rated voltage from left to right, they are even slower finish. Thus, the direction is very important here.
Efeknyapun not of short duration, but the last, when tested again six months later, still the same hsailnya.
