24gray-blog427 (1)CNS Visiting Scholar Anna Wexler explained the phenomenon of DIY brain stimulation in Sunday’s New York Times. Her piece, called “Zapping Their Brains at Home,” also corrected the widespread assumption that DIY users are all foolhardy and reckless, describing the ways in which they have sought guidance from the scientific literature. She also noted, with approval, recent outreach in the opposite direction, from the scientific to the DIY community – namely CNS Fellow Rachel Wurzman’s open letter to the DIY community published in Annals of Neurology.
