Sending a mild shock to the brain may help resolve speech problems. It may also offer an innovative way to improve learning and performance levels.

A recent study revealed that people who stutter perform significantly better on a speech test if they are zapped with a treatment called transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS).

Researchers concluded that mild shocks to the brains of people who stutter, combined with a brief course of speech therapy, produced better results than speech therapy alone.

The tDCS process involves sending a tiny current through specific regions of the brain to make neurons more likely to fire.
