Improving Memory with Magnetic Pulsing

Auditory Memory of the BrainUsing TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) pulsed at a specific frequency, researchers at McGill University in Canada, discovered auditory memory was improved. While the ability to remember sounds is crucial to understand sentences and do simple arithmetic, the results are promising for a broad range of other memory functions.

According to the study’s author, “Now we know human behavior can be specifically boosted using stimulation that matched ongoing self-generated brain oscillations, even more exciting is that while this study investigated auditory memory, the same approach can be used for multiple cognitive processes such as vision, perception, and learning.”

The article states, “One day this stimulation could compensate for the loss of memory caused by neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.”
