Currently, our research group is carrying out a project focalized in non-invasive cerebral stimulation as a technique to potentiate cognitive functions in aging and preclinical stages of Alzheimer’s disease. The previous step of this project was performed on healthy aging people and now our research is centered on people with subjective cognitive decline. In both cases, our goal is to study how the brain responses to this type of intervention.
Volunteers must attend a total of 4 days to study, each session lasts approximately 1 hour. During the first session, a neuropsychological examination will be performed and the remaining three days the participants undergo memory tasks and electric non-invasive brain stimulation. In addition, a magnetic resonance is acquired for each subject in order to better characterize the brain at structural and functional level.
