interesting, but I don't see the (implied?) inconsistency with having a soul. The affect of the current was to improve concentration, right?

Did you read the article or only my short summary?

In the article, she says the effect on her was to shut off a lot of her internal commentary. Of course, since I still don't understand what the soul is supposed to be doing that the brain is not (and that therefore wouldn't be changed by physical influences on the brain)...

What do you think would imply inconsistency with having a soul?

I wonder what people decide when faced with ethical dilemmas while wearing the electrodes? In other words, how it affects their conscience?

Me too.
