Task demands, tDCS intensity, and the COMT val(158)met polymorphism impact tDCS-linked working memory training gains
Working memory (WM) training paired with transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) can improve executive function in older adults. The unclear mechanism of tDCS likely depends on tDCS intensity, and task relevant ...
Visual adaptation reveals an objective electrophysiological measure of high-level individual face discrimination
The ability to individualize faces is a fundamental human brain function. Following visual adaptation to one individual face, the suppressed neural response to this identity becomes discriminable from an unadapted facial ...
How reliable are the effects of self-control training?: A re-examination using self-report and physical measures
In light of recent challenges to the strength model of self-control, our study re-examines the effects of self-control training on established physical and self-report measures of self-control. We also examined whether ...
Age-Related Changes in Sensorimotor Temporal Binding
The causal relationship between a voluntary movement and a sensory event is crucial for experiencing agency. Sensory events must occur within a certain delay from a voluntary movement to be perceived as self-generated. ...
Editorial: Revisiting the Effectiveness of Transcranial Direct Current Brain Stimulation for Cognition: Evidence, Challenges, and Open Questions
Over the past 15 years, there has been an explosion of interest in the use of noninvasive brain stimulation approaches to study the brain. Some studies have suggested that transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) in ...
Depth Without a Surface: Observations From a "Finger Spinner" Depth Illusion
A trending novelty toy that is spun between the fingers induces a striking depth illusion from specular reflections. Further examination of the phenomenon suggests that when surface features are obscured by spinning, depth ...
Correspondence regarding two recent publications in npj: schizophrenia about DNAm and accelerated aging in schizophrenia
We read with interest the recent reports by McKinney et al.1 and Voisey et al.2 Using ‘the Horvath clock’ of DNA methylation (DNAm) in prefrontal cortex1 and superior temporal gyrus,2 both studies reported no evidence of ...
