Electrical brain stimulation using a non-invasive cap can help boost older people’s mental scores to those of people 20-30 years younger, according to a US study.

Age-related decline in working memory can be reversed by stimulating two key brain areas at a specific rhythm, the researchers say in Nature Neuroscience.
