This neuro-mongering-placebo-magik and CRISPR are the next frontier of doping. I, for one, cannot wait.

It won't be applicable to most IGXers as having a brain is a prerequisite.

I looked into tDCS a few months (being a fan of better living through chemistry, any of the biohacking shit piques my curiosity if only to enjoy the 99% that's horseshit and the people throwing away their money on it). The effects seemed to be along the lines of brain games apps - you get better at whatever you're doing while actively getting zapped, crossover to the rest of your life was questionable. Better off getting Adderall or modafinil or something if you want to concentrate.
