tDCS on paradigm transfer following multi-session backward recall training.

Link – The effects of transcranial direct current stimulation on within- and cross-paradigm transfer following multi-session backward recall training. Abstract Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has been shown to enhance the efficacy and generalisation of working memory (WM) training, but there has been little systematic investigation into how coupling task-specific WM training with stimulation impacts […]

Does tDCS affect motor learning in patients with MS?

Link – Does M1 anodal transcranial direct current stimulation affects online and offline motor learning in patients with multiple sclerosis? Abstract OBJECTIVE: Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is one of the most common neurological diseases in the world. Due to structural and functional changes in central nerves system, the patients with MS may affected by sensory-motor learning […]

tDCS facilitates verbal learning and memory consolidation

Link – Multisession transcranial direct current stimulation facilitates verbal learning and memory consolidation in young and older adults. Abstract This study investigated effects of multisession transcranial direct-current stimulation on learning and maintenance of novel memory content and scrutinised effects of baseline cognitive status and the role of multi-session tDCS on overnight memory consolidation. In a […]

Effects of tDCS protocols on visuo-spatial contextual learning

Link – Effects of different transcranial direct current stimulation protocols on visuo-spatial contextual learning formation: evidence of homeostatic regulatory mechanisms. Abstract In the present study we tested the effects of different transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) protocols in the formation of visuo-spatial contextual learning (VSCL). The study comprised three experiments designed to evaluate tDCS-induced changes […]

Instructor-learner brain coupling with fNIRS

Link – Instructor-learner brain coupling discriminates between instructional approaches and predicts learning. Abstract The neural mechanisms that support naturalistic learning via effective pedagogical approaches remain elusive. Here we used functional near-infrared spectroscopy to measure brain activity from instructor-learner dyads simultaneously during dynamic conceptual learning. Results revealed that brain-to-brain coupling was correlated with learning outcomes, and, […]
