Engineering - Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation and Memory

On Demand Session On Demand Session

This session will present the state-of-the-art in non-invasive brain stimulation to enhance cognition and memory, including in older adults. Techniques presented will include transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS), and High-Definition transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (HD-tDCS). Advanced approaches to the use of anatomical and functional imaging to personalize brain stimulation will be explained.

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss different technologies used for non-invasive brain stimulation.
  • Review the applications of non-invasive brain stimulation for memory deficits in mild cognitive impairment.
  • Describe applications of non-invasive brain stimulation in older adults.
