Abstract

Date Presented 4/16/2015

A combined intervention of transcranial direct current stimulation and a working memory (WM) training protocol significantly enhanced performance on both trained and transfer WM tasks in healthy older adults. The continuation of this research includes tasks with greater ecological validity.
