Electric shock to the brain boosts memory ’15 per cent’

Adevice that gives the brain electric shocks has prompted hope for Alzheimer’s patients after an initial trial showed it could improve memory by 15 per cent.

The US study was described as “promising” by British Experts, but they cautioned it was too early to say for sure if it promises a treatment for dementia.

The machine works by monitoring the brain for indications they are not learning words properly and giving short bursts of electricity to neurons.
