A recent study suggests that suppressing the reasoning part of the brain may stimulate creativity.
The results, published in the journal Scientific Reports, suggest that the proportion of participants who were able to solve the toughest problems for the first time after receiving their designated stimulation, were higher for those receiving negative stimulation at 32%, compared to just 5% for positive and sham stimulation.
The hidden danger here is that technology could be exploited by consumers, since tDCS is easily available and creativity is a highly valued attribute. We certainly hope that people would not turn to tDCS for creative inspiration, in the same way masses have been turning to drugs or alcohol.
