[Autom. eng. transl.] Neurosciences define neurocognitive enhancement as the set of techniques that allow us to make the most of the potential of the human brain. Traditionally, they are activated through the use of drugs, brain stimulation, mental training practices, exploiting cortical plasticity. But now you can do it even with smartglasses. This conclusion was reached by a team led by Michela Balconi, Director of the Research Unit in Social Neuroscience and Emotions and professor of cognitive neuroscience at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart in Milan and Brescia. "We used smartglasses that, through an app, involve subjects in mindfulness practices. These are devices that allow these skills to be developed in less time and with a more agile approach," he explained to Wired Health The result is that "these technological aids have enabled these skills to be enhanced, reducing levels of anxiety and stress and increasing vigor and mental energy." A result made possible by the fact that smartglasses "immediately offer the brain a feedback that reinforces the skills we are training in. This brings us into a virtuous circle whereby we see the effectiveness of what we are doing and our brain is self-protecting "
