Researchers at Edith Cowan University (ECU) explored the effects of transcranial random noise stimulation (tRNS) on human cognition and learning. The study is published in the journal Neuroscience & Biobehavioral Reviews.

The Study

The study reviewed the existing literature on transcranial random noise stimulation (tRNS), focusing on its impact on the brain, behavior, memory, and learning potential.

The Findings

The analysis of existing research and emerging studies revealed that “random noise” may play a key role in helping some people improve their learning potential. It was also found that tRNS has promise as a tool to assist people with compromised learning capabilities and neurobiological conditions.

One of the lead researchers, Dr. Onno van der Groen, elaborated: “When you add this type of stimulation during learning, you get better performance, faster learning, and better attention afterward as well. So, people with learning difficulties can use it to enhance their learning rates, for example. It’s also been trialed on people with visual deficits, such as after stroke and traumatic brain injury.
