Brain stimulation and Memory Strategies

 

We are interested in teasing apart whether tDCS affects working memory capacity and/or strategic attitudes in young and older individuals. We use non-invasive brain stimulation, behavioral measures and EEG to find markers of the effectiveness of combined working memory and tDCS training.
