Participants sought: How brain stimulation may affect cognition in aging

Participants aged 56 to 75 years are being sought for a research project using brain stimulation to enhance cognitive performance and neural plasticity. Participation will involve completing a series of cognitive tasks both before and after administration of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). tDCS is a safe, painless and non-invasive means of stimulating nerve cells in the brain. Changes in brain activity before and after tDCS will be measured through the use of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and electroencephalography (EEG).

The research is conducted at the Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre. Participants are required to attend for a single session only (approx. 3.5 hours), and will be reimbursed $30 for their time.
