Verbal long-term memory is enhanced by retrieval practice but impaired by prefrontal direct current stimulation. Brain Cogn. 2018 Nov 08;: Authors: Brunyé TT, Smith AM, Horner CB, Thomas AK Abstract Retrieval practice involves repeatedly testing a student during the learning experience, reliably conferring learning advantages relative to repeated study. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) of the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (dlPFC) has also been shown to confer learning advantages for verbal memory, though research is equivocal. The present study examined the effects of retrieval versus study practice with or without left dlPFC tDCS on verbal episodic memory. Participants (N = 150) experienced ... read more
