Giving a person an electric shock can help improve their memory, scientists have discovered.

Researchers found that a tiny surge of power to parts of the brain can improve recall memory by 11 per cent.

The treatment stimulates certain neurons in the brain so when a person tries to retrieve a name from their brain, they suddenly start working.

If developed it could provide treatment for stroke victims as well as people whose memory fades through other ailments or even old age.
