Personalized Frequency Modulated Transcranial Electrical Stimulation for Associative Memory Enhancement

Personalized Frequency Modulated Transcranial Electrical Stimulation for Associative Memory Enhancement
Brain Sci. 2022 Apr 2;12(4):472. doi: 10.3390/brainsci12040472.ABSTRACTAssociative memory (AM) is the ability to remember the relationship between previously unrelated items. AM is significantly affected by normal aging and neurodegenerative conditions, thus there is a growing interest in applying non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) techniques for AM enhancement. A growing body of studies identifies posterior parietal cortex (PPC) as the most promising cortical target for both transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial electrical stimulation (tES) to modulate a cortico-hippocampal network that underlines AM. In that sense, theta frequency oscillatory tES protocols, targeted towards the hallmark oscillatory activity within the cortico-hippocampal network, are ... read more
