"Micro Napping" or "Drop Napping" as used for sustained, heightened sessions of creative focus - used by eminent figures like Dali, Einstein etc.

Scientists at the Salk Institute, USA have discovered a way to control brain cells using ultrasonic sound waves. Their method, which they call ‘sonogenetics’, has been applied to the tiny worm Caenorhabditis elegans, and can pave the way for advanced research into brain function by letting researchers target individual neurons in the brain.

Long panel presentation on Non-invasive modalities for Neuroenhancement.

Noninvasive brain stimulation technologies have exploded in popularity over recent years. Technologies such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and tr.

Military applications of tDCS demonstrating increased focus.  "But when they stimulated the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex of volunteers’ brains, an area they had found to be crucial for attention, they found absolutely no reduction in performance for the entire 40-minute duration of the test. “That had never been shown before,” he says enthusiastically. “We’ve never been able to find anything else that creates that kind of preservation of performance.”

Brain stimulation: The military’s mind-zapping project

Shocking the brain with mild electrical current could quicken learning and improve attention, and as Emma Young discovers, the US military is very interested.

Exciting new modality employing ultrasound to to activate a range of brain, heart and muscle cells from outside the body.  Emerging technology, potential to promote vigilance yet unseen. Potential avenue to explore for conditions where optogenetic manipulation is unsuitable.

'Sonogenetics' allows brain cells to be controlled by sound waves

Scientists have used genetically modified worms to show that ultrasound can be used to activate brain, heart and muscle cells from outside the body
