Not the normal scientific metaphor.
In a paper on the use of electric current to boost brain memory, researchers at Northwestern University show that it it necessary to stimulate several different regions of the brain in order to achieve the desired effect. They go on to say:
The electrical stimulation is like giving the brain regions a more talented conductor so they play in closer synchrony.
‘It’s like we replaced their normal conductor with Muti,’ said senior author Joel Voss, assistant professor of medical social sciences at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.
