You ever pause mid-sentence because you completely forgot what in the world you were saying? Or read an entire page and realize you retained zero information and have to re-read it multiple times? According to a recent Forbes article, there’s a neuroscience startup aiming to change the way we learn and remember, with a patch that’s worn on the forehead.

The company is called Humm, and their product is a neurostimulation patch that creates transcranial alternating current stimulation, aka electrical charge to the prefrontal cortex of the brain, to boost memory 20%. Humm will debut as a subscription that costs $60/month. Subscribers will receive new patches periodically, which means they won’t have to clean or recharge the disposable patches.
