Neurohacking is the study
and understanding of the mechanisms
underlying brain function in an effort to
influence and change how the brain functions.
A neurohack is a discrete set of rules or methods
that can be exlplained and replicated. It may involve
pharmacology, tDCS, tACS, TMS, rTMS, cognitive exercises,
light and sound stimulation, genentic enginering, or any
other conceivable method for this end. On this page you
can find resources, schematics, downloads and articles
that should all be part of a neurohackers toolkit as
well as guidance for aspiring neurohackers. A few
things to remember, it's all theory, most of it's
bad theory. If you are interested in neurohacking
for self-improvement you should first ask
what it is you hope to accomplish and
importantly why. The healthy human
brain is already equipped
to perform and excell,
the limiting factor
is the desire
to do so.

PEBL Psychological Test Battery Tutorial
The PEBL psychological test battery can be useful for its variety of tests
as well as being able to design your own tests and modify the standard battery by using the PEBL programming launguage A wiki tutorial page can be found here: CogSci2011 Tutorial
This video is an example tutorial of PEBL as well as a PEBL script which can be downloaded on the the video page or via link beneath the video. It can be opened with a text editor to be viewed and modified.
A simple experiment which anyone can do. Use an auditory 40Hz tone while taking the iconic memory test and compare scores with and without. You can also compare an 8Hz auditory tone to the 40Hz as well.
It should be noted that the potentiometer should be a value of 100K Ohm and the hookup wire should be replaced with a DC cable adapter and plug instead of wires simply exiting the case.
