" Effect of Affordance of Objects on the Memory: Study in Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation "

The purpose of this study is determine the involvement of motor system in the memory of manipulable objects. The idea is to stimulate the ventral premotor cortex with transcranial magnetic...

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Apathy in Mild Cognitive Impairment

Apathy, a profound loss of initiative and motivation, is often seen in older Veterans with memory problems. Apathy leads to serious health problems, increases dependency, and caregiver bur...

Effects of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation to the Cerebellum on Cognition

Functional neuroimaging studies have shown that the cerebellum is active during cognitive performance. The investigators hypothesize that stimulation of the cerebellum with transcranial m...

Enhancing Working Memory in Patients With Early Alzheimer's Disease Through the Use of rTMS

In this study the investigators aim at assessing and then enhancing neuroplasticity in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) and working memory - a key function of DLPFC - in patients...

Augmentation of Working Memory Training With Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation in Patients With Schizophrenia

Cognitive impairment is a core symptom of schizophrenia and is in a large part responsible for the poor psychosocial outcome of the disorder. The use of non-invasive brain stimulation tech...

Improving working memory and pain inhibition in older persons using transcranial direct current stimulation.

The aim of the present study was to examine whether transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) could enhance working memory and pain inhibition in older persons. Fifteen volunteers (7 women, 8 men...

Differential effects of high-definition transcranial direct current stimulation on verbal working memory performance according to sensory modality.

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a non-invasive brain stimulation technique that modulates cortical excitability in a polarity-dependent manner. The diffuse nature of tDCS makes it di...

How can transcranial magnetic stimulation be used to causally manipulate memory representations in the human brain?

We present a focused review on the utility of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) for modulating memory, with a particular focus on multimodal approaches in which TMS is paired with neuroimaging m...

Impact of concurrent task performance on transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS)-Induced changes in cortical physiology and working memory.

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) provides a means of non-invasively inducing plasticity-related changes in neural circuits in vivo and is experiencing increasing use as a potential tool...

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) over parietal cortex improves associative memory.

Associative memory plays a key role in everyday functioning, but it declines with normal aging as well as due to various pathological states and conditions, thus impairing quality of life. Associative...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The electrical response evoked in a muscle or motor nerve by electrical or magnetic stimulation. Common methods of stimulation are by transcranial electrical and TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION. It is often used for monitoring during neurosurgery.

Measurable changes in activities in the CEREBRAL CORTEX upon a stimulation. A change in cortical excitability as measured by various techniques (e.g., TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION) is associated with brain disorders.

A technique of brain electric stimulation therapy which uses constant, low current delivered via ELECTRODES placed on various locations on the scalp.

Type of declarative memory, consisting of personal memory in contrast to general knowledge.

The observation and analysis of movements in a task with an emphasis on the amount of time required to perform the task.
