Abstract

Date Presented 4/8/2016

In older adults, we paired the neuroscience approaches working memory training and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) with the occupational therapy goal of improved everyday cognition. Five laboratory sessions of training + tDCS elicited lasting gains on everyday cognitive tasks assessed in participants’ homes.
