Iain McIntyre is the CEO and co-founder of Humm. Humm creates devices such as the Bioelectric Memory Patch that use electricity to stimulate the brain. The disposable forehead device has shown to cause an increase in brain functionality and memory.
In this episode, Iain McIntyre discusses how the Humm Bioelectric Memory Patch provides a brain-boost.
Top three takeaways:
[0:00] Ladan introduces the episode and the guest, Iain McIntyre.
[2:50] The Bioelectric Memory Patch device works by delivering tACS to stimulate the prefrontal cortex and improve working memory.
[5:00] The research studies done at Berkeley showed that users of the patch had a 20% increase in working memory effectiveness.
[8:20] McIntyre describes it as a compound interest transaction, the more the patch is used, the greater the benefits each time.
[11:10] Humm can provide results in a safe manner where there are rarely side effects due to the low amount of current.
[14:00] While trials and data collection currently assess healthy users; in the future, the project will be used to help with neurological diseases.
[17:00] Interestingly, the test groups that were found to have the most need for such a device are college students and the elderly.
[21:10] With a 15-minute session, you can achieve an hour and a half of noticeable brain activity improvement.
