Noninvasive brain stimulation has shown considerable promise for enhancing cognitive functions by the long-term manipulation of neuroplasticity ....(transcranial random noise stimulation (TRNS)) .....Five consecutive days of TRNS-accompanied cognitive training enhanced the speed of both calculation- and memory-recall-based arithmetic learning. .....These results demonstrate that, depending on the learning regime, TRNS can induce long-term enhancement of cognitive and brain functions. .....
