Need superhuman strength to survive the zombie apocalypse? In this podcast, we discuss the concept and the research behind a new form of performance hacking, what’s been dubbed Brain doping, or more formally known as NeuroPriming. This is a procedure scientifically termed transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) used to increase plasticity in the brain prior to an activity. This process decreases the amount of input required for neurons to fire, and helps neurons fire together, enabling more rapid strengthening of connections in the brain. When paired with quality training, this results in increased strength, explosiveness, endurance, and muscle memory. Quackery you say? Maybe, let’s take a closer look.
