Does tDCS Over Prefrontal Cortex Improve Episodic Memory Retrieval? Potential Importance of Time of Day.

Does tDCS Over Prefrontal Cortex Improve Episodic Memory Retrieval? Potential Importance of Time of Day.
Does tDCS Over Prefrontal Cortex Improve Episodic Memory Retrieval? Potential Importance of Time of Day. Cogn Neurosci. 2018 Jul 23;: Authors: Wong LYX, Gray SJ, Gallo DA Abstract We report 4 experiments aiming to replicate and extend the finding that anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) over dorsolateral prefrontal cortex after encoding and just prior to retrieval improves accuracy on a recollection task (Gray, Brookshire, Casasanto, & Gallo, 2015). Our first 3 experiments failed to replicate the tDCS effect in planned analyses, but post-hoc analyses uncovered tDCS effects on recollection accuracy during morning sessions. To further investigate, Experiment 4 randomly ... read more
