There is a growing health trend out there that involves people giving themselves electrical shocks to the brain to boost creativity.
Researchers say this shock therapy -- called transcranial electrical stimulation -- actually works. The trick is to use very low power current.
Even though it’s legit, there is a problem. Experts are worried about people building their own machines and giving themselves this electrical stimulation with gadgets either bought online or made at home.
Scientists have seen enough students doing this -- and even parents doing it to their kids -- that they came out with an official report, warning everyone of the dangers. (IFLScience)
