Evidence of dissociation between working memory and attention.

Link – Behavioral and electrophysiological evidence for a dissociation between working memory capacity and feature-based attention. Abstract When attending to visual objects with particular features, neural processing is typically biased toward those features. Previous work has suggested that maintaining such feature-based attentional sets may involve the same neural resources as visual working memory. If so, […]

Impact of tDCS on sustained attention in breast cancer survivors

Link – Impact of transcranial direct current stimulation on sustained attention in breast cancer survivors: Evidence for feasibility, tolerability, and initial efficacy. Abstract BACKGROUND: A significant subset of breast cancer survivors experience cognitive difficulties in attention and memory, which persist for years following treatment. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has been shown to be effective […]

Anodal tDCS enhances the functional brain network communication

Link – Anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (atDCS) enhances the efficiency of functional brain network communication during auditory attentional control. Abstract Attentional control is crucial for selectively attending to relevant information when our brain is confronted with a multitude of sensory signals. Graph-theoretical measures provide a powerful tool for investigating the efficiency of brain network […]

tDCS on Attention Function in Healthy Young Adults

Link – Effects of transcranial direct current stimulation over right posterior parietal cortex on attention function in healthy young adults. Abstract Attention involves three distinct networks for alerting, orienting, and executive control. Interventions targeting the specific attentional networks remain lacking. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has been shown to modulate cortical excitability, which potentially serves […]
