Nerve Stimulation To Accelerate Learning

DARPA to Explore Nerve Stimulation to Accelerate Learning Processes

EdSurge | March 28, 2016

A smart stimulus? The Internet. Google Maps. Many of the tools we use today for driving, research and learning had roots the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, a branch of the U.S. Department of Defense. (Not all ideas are good; see BigDog for instance.)
This month, the agency—most affectionately known by its acronym—announced a new program, “Targeted Neuroplasticity Training” (TNT), that “will explore using peripheral nerve stimulation to enhance learning processes in the brain.”
