Lucy Jones writing in The Long & Short explores transcranial directcurrent stimulation (or tDCS), a form of neurostimulation that involves zapping the brain with low level electrical current. She meets the scientists and DIY enthusiasts using tDCS to find out if there are any benefits to it and if we should all be trying it.
