A group of researchers from Aalto University in Finland and University of Helsinki, for the first time improved the functioning of the brain using transcranial magnetic stimulation, writes the journal Cerebral Cortex.

In the experiment, the scientists influenced meta-cognitive processes by means of neuronal excitation by short magnetic pulses, which allowed people to better cope with the next task on tactile memory.

Metacognitive processes or metacognition is the ability of people to monitor and control their own cognitive processes: different types of memory, attention, emotions, decision-making.
