"Volunteers receiving 2 milliamps to the scalp (about one-five-hundredth 
the amount drawn by a 100-watt light bulb) showed twice as much 
improvement in the game after a short amount of training as those 
receiving one-twentieth the amount of current".  It's called 
transcranial direct-current stimulation (tDCS).

"Students might secretly 'electrodope' with tDCS before a university 
entrance exam to inflate their scores"
