Brain Stimulation Rapidly Revives Working Memory in Older Adults

The study was published online April 8/2019 in Nature Neuroscience. Age-related decline in working memory can be reversed using transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) to synchronize rhythmic brain circuits, new research suggests. Investigators at the Center for Systems Neuroscience at Boston University made two discoveries. First, in older adults, deficits in working memory stem from specific brain circuits […]
