The constant search for tranquil places to get our work done might need to end, as a new study shows how ‘random noise’ can be beneficial for our brain to learn and perceive faster.
Based on a pre-existing research, this study expands on how transcranial random noise stimulation (tRNS) can improve our perception, learning potential, neuroplasticity, attention span, and perpetual decision making.
What are tRNS?
Firstly, tRNS has nothing to do with random noises rather it is a non-invasive form of brain stimulation that consists of weak alternating current oscillating in random frequencies to the scalp, it is sent via a pair of electrodes. The electrodes placed on the scalp stimulate brain tissues and enhance performance at certain tasks which relates to enhanced plasticity in target neurons.
New tools of the future
As established before, tRNS enhances communication between brain areas (neuroplasticity) this can potentially reduce some of the behavioral effects of neurological conditions like ADHD & Schizophrenia as these are conditions that lack communication between different parts of the brain.
Even though a lot more in-depth research is needed for tRNS to be the tool of the future, it is still considered to be a revolutionary step.
