Participants sought: Research project on brain stimulation. aging and cognition

Participants are sought by the Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre (MAPrc) for a research project using brain stimulation to enhance cognitive performance and neural plasticity.

You may be eligible for this study conducted at the MAPrc if you:
  • are aged 56 to 80 years
  • have experienced a decline in memory OR 
  • have been diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment
Participants will be asked to attend the centre for a single session that will take approximately 3.5 hours. Participants will complete a series of cognitive tasks both before and after the administration of a safe, painless and non-invasive means of brain stimulation: transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS).  Changes in brain activity will be measured using Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and electroencephalography (EEG).

If you are interested in taking part or would like more information, please contact Ms Melanie Emonson: melanie.emonson@monash.edu
