Neurovascular coupling

 

We investigate the effect of non-invasive brain stimulation on cognitive training by considering the cardiovascular function as a crucial component for a better cognitive augmentation in elderly participants. Some of the activities involve tDCS application, evaluation of cardiovascular indexes and behavioral measurements (i.e. working memory).
