Usually it takes time and a lot of practice for us to learn something new or to improve on a skill, but is there a way of accelerating the progress of improvement, like say getting our brains zapped while in the process of learning? That’s what some staff from NPR tried to find out.
What if we could master skills a lot faster — with less practice — simply by wearing a brain-boosting headset? I tried the technology behind this claim to improve my vertical jump. In Future You Episode 3, check out the technology and whether my vertical jump got higher — and hear from an Olympic athlete who has tried it as well as the founder of Halo Neuroscience, a company that makes brain-boosting headsets.
