Research Claims in Berlin: Creativity may improve with electric shock

Reading Time: 2 minutes
  • University students got good results in three standard tests from 22-minute shock 
  • Vomiting the position of electrodes also showed a drop in the creativity of students

On the switch of electricity, the creativity of the brain can be improved. In Germany, researcher of Freiburg University Elisabeth Hernstein and colleagues have done this through transcranial direct current stimulation (TDCS) technology. Light shocks of light are given in the brain by installing electrodes from the head in TDCS.

Neuroscientists think that due to positive electrode (anode) current the brain cells work hard, whereas the negative electrode (cathode) has the opposite effect. 

Students gave better results in three Tests

  • Scientists in a paper published in brain stimulation wrote, “After 22 minutes, students of the university have done good results in three standard tests after TDCS, they use these tests to measure psychological creativity. 
  • The students performed well when the anode was placed on the right side of the brain in the inferior frontal gyrus (IFG). This part deals with problem solving and immediate reaction. Cathode fit on the left side of IFG Attempted to increase the activity of the right side of the brain and reduce the activity of the left part.
  • Christophe Nissen, a member of the Research Group, said that the students who were given the TDCS gave 10 to 20% good results in three tests compared to those students, who were shown to be exhibited. When the position of the electrode was vomited, there was a decline in creativity. Although it is not clear how TDCS affects the brain.
