Army Studies Electrical Brain Zaps for Enhancing Soldier Performance

U.S. Army scientists are studying how running electrical current through the brain could enhance soldier performance when reacting to a threat on the battlefield.

Neurostimulation has been studied in many areas, such as medical rehabilitation.

"What we are doing is brand new. ... We are looking specifically at performance enhancement," Tad Brunye, senior cognitive scientist for the U.S. Army's Combat Capabilities Development Command, told Military.com on Thursday at a technology demonstration event at the Pentagon.
