Link – Anodal Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation Can Improve Spatial Learning and Memory and Attenuate Aβ42 Burden at the Early Stage of Alzheimer’s Disease in APP/PS1 Transgenic Mice. Abstract Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is an irreversible progressive neurodegenerative disease. Intervention in the early stage of AD is a new path for AD treatment that is being […]

tDCS on Alzheimer’s disease patients

Link – Effects of short- and long-term neurostimulation (tDCS) on Alzheimer’s disease patients: two randomized studies. Abstract BACKGROUND: Non-invasive brain stimulation is an effective treatment for Alzheimer’s disease. AIMS: The purpose of the two studies presented here is to compare the short- and long-term effects of transcranial direct current stimulation (t-DCS) on two samples of […]

tES on episodic memory in ageing.

Link – Effects of transcranial electrical stimulation on episodic memory in physiological and pathological ageing. Abstract Memory for personally past events (episodic memory) is critical for activities of daily living. Decline in this type of declarative long-term memory is a common characteristic of healthy ageing, a process accelerated in patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) […]

Abnormal alpha rhythms with preclinical Alzheimer’s neuropathology

Link – Resting-state posterior alpha rhythms are abnormal in subjective memory complaint seniors with preclinical Alzheimer’s neuropathology and high education level: the INSIGHT-preAD study. Abstract Cognitive reserve is present in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) seniors with high education attainment making them clinically resilient to extended brain neuropathology and neurodegeneration. Here, we tested whether subjective memory complaint […]
