Many of us are familiar with Garmin and FitBit and all the other such devices that monitor our vitals and tell us how many calories we’ve burnt over a period of time.
But now we have access to a new kind of gadgets that we can wear to boost our mood. These gadgets claim to be able to make us possess greater willpower, think more creatively and even physically  jump higher. This new technology may even succeed in delivering on the holy grail of emotions i. e. Happiness.
There seems to be real science behind these devices. It involves stimulating key regions of the brain -with currents or magnetic fields -to affect emotions and physical well-being. It isn’t too different from how electroshock therapy works to counter certain mental illnesses and how deep-brain stimulation smooths motion disorders such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease. Happyho also provide best tarot reading services in Noida and Delhi NCR India area.
But using electrical currents to change the way the brain behaves sounds dangerous – and neuroscientists are rightly concerned. According to Kevin Zaghloul, a brain scientist, even if the devices work as expected, there are also concerns about how they account for individual variability in brain structure and whether enhancing one area of the brain could negatively affect another.
Other scientists are even more worried, wondering if repeated usage can lead to overdose-like situations. And what happens if these devices become defective or are sabotaged? obviously, no one really knows the long-term consequences of using them.
These devices work via something called “transcranial directcurrent stimulation”. They send weak electrical currents that jolt neurons, which can increase or decrease the release of certain chemicals that can change the way a person is feeling.
