Your every thought and action is a result of electrical activity in your brain. tDCS or transcranial Direct Current Stimulation is a simple way to augment the brains natural functions.
tDCS has been proven to enhance alertness, boost focus and increase capacity to learn.
It might sound too good to be true and it is certainly controversial, but there is increasing evidence to support the claims.
Passing a mild electrical current over the scalp, the excitation levels of brain cells can be altered, thereby subtly affecting the way the brain behaves.
It's no secret that I'm a bit of a fan of foc.us. The small London based DIY company has been on a serious innovation binge since they entered the market with the foc.us V1 - which was by far the most versatile tDCS* device in its time. Later foc.us released the V2 which is still one of the most capable brain stimulation devices on the market (not just tDCS.) Late last year, foc.us introduced the Go Flow - a simple, very portable, tDCS device for a very low price. It has evolved into a complete kit that the company is calling the Go Flow Pro - it includes all you need to have a very capable tDCS device that is simple to operate - and only $99 complete.

tDCS is really easy to use by yourself. Once you have positioned the electrodes and started the stimulation you simply wait for the session to automatically finish. If it feels uncomfortable you can change the current level to a lower level.
Anodal stimulation is believed to excite a brain region. The electrical current flow increases the action potential making brain cells more likely to fire.
X is the default anode electrode.
Cathodal stimulation is the opposite of anodal and so inhibits a brain area. The reversed electrical flow decreases the charge making neuronal activity less likely.
Y is the default cathode electrode.
tDCS is consider experimental. The exact mechanisms are not fully understood and research is ongoing. tDCS is not FDA approved and foc.us do not recommend foc.us products for the treatment of any medical condition.
