My mousey friends have again been helping out with research into memory. Studies have shown that by using a magnetic coil, mouse memory and learning can be improved. They are already clever little devils. They will be doing degrees in mathmatics or media studies next !
The same technique – called Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation – is now going to be trialled on patients with early stage memory loss. It involves holding a magnetic coil over their heads while they try to answer quiz questions and complete puzzles.
If it works, you can imagine in years to come we could all be walking around the streets looking like Roger Moore in “The Saint”.
I wonder if it will help me do the fiendish Sudoku?
