On the table in front of me in a New York hotel lob­by lies a gad­get from Halo Neu­ro­science that looks like a cross between high-end head­phones and a crown of thorns…Halo isn’t a crazy, out-of-the-blue break­through. It relies on tran­scra­nial elec­tri­cal stim­u­la­tion (tES), a tech­nique that can trace its roots as far back as the 19th cen­tu­ry and has become a hot field of neu­ro­science research in the 21st cen­tu­ry. The elec­tric puls­es work only when com­bined with rig­or­ous training…

And so Halo is intro­duc­ing a legit­i­mate, well-fund­ed, well-designed neu­ro-stim­u­la­tion prod­uct to con­sumer mar­kets. There’s no telling whether it will be the ulti­mate win­ner in the space, but it seems clear that Halo or some com­pa­ny will pop­u­lar­ize tES—at least for ath­letes and for those seek­ing to improve mem­o­ry and cognition.
