Zapping the Brain Improves Memory

A new study conducted at UCLA has shown that "zapping the brain" can improve memory.  The key to better memory lies in the ERC, or entorhinal cortex.

The small study, conducted with seven patients who have epilepsy, showcases new possibilities for further research.

The study itself asked patients to play a video game in which they were taxi drivers who had to drop off passengers to six different stores in the virtual world. During trips to three of the destinations, scientists electrically stimulated
