Pushing The Limits of Our Brains

In the past few months I’ve been trying to come up with ways to increase human potential, and really push the limits of our human brain. It all started after watching “Lucy”, a movie about a woman that was given some drugs that transformed her into a being without limits. Although reading minds and telekinesis are incredibly cool powers, I was hoping to simply find a way to boost more typical abilities such as coordination, memory intake or rehabilitation. After some reading, I came across a method involving transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
