If you, on your lesser days, could reach for a thinking cap to make you a little brainier, what would you expect?
Would you expect to solve math problems quicker? Would you imagine that complex scientific puzzlers would suddenly seem like simple amusements? Or would you expect to be able to paint a convincing forgery of the Sistine Chapel ceiling in your three-bedroom ranch house?
I ask because a professor in Sydney, Australia, has created a "thinking cap" and thinks he has the answers to the above questions.
