Brain Stimul. 2019 Feb 21;: Authors: Bueno-Lopez A, Eggert T, Dorn H, Danker-Hopfe H Abstract BACKGROUND: The manipulation of specific brain oscillations by applying transcranial electrical stimulation techniques in order to enhance memory processes during sleep has become an intriguing field of research. A seminal study found a positive effect of slow-oscillatory transcranial direct current stimulation (so-tDCS) on sleep-dependent consolidation of declarative memories. Since then several studies have tried to replicate this result with inconsistent findings. OBJECTIVE/HYPOTHESIS: ... read more
