Other electromagnetic stimulation magnetoconvulsive treatment MCT

The potential hazard of seizure induction during repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) has recently been turned into a potential strength, by using a varying magnetic field to induce seizures during magnetoconvulsive therapy (MCT) (Lisanby et al., 2001). Without the vagaries of poor and variable electric conductivity that allows only a small proportion of the current applied during ECT to pass through the brain, MCT can focus and dose the brain stimulation more accurately and reliably, with the potential benefit of limiting stimulation to the brain structures essential for treatment response, and reducing side effects, such as memory impairment.

Could it be that they're just born smarter or quicker than the rest of us? Or are there some secrets that they might know that we don't?
