Insights from neuropsychology: pinpointing the role of the posterior parietal cortex in episodic and working memory
The role of posterior parietal cortex (PPC) in various forms of memory is a current topic of interest in the broader field of cognitive neuroscience. This large cortical region has been linked with a wide range of mnemonic ...
Longitudinal tDCS: Consistency across Working Memory Training Studies
There is great interest in enhancing and maintaining cognitive function. In recent years, advances in noninvasive brain stimulation devices, such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), have targeted working ...
Hits and Misses: Leveraging tDCS to Advance Cognitive Research
The popularity of non-invasive brain stimulation techniques in basic, commercial, and applied settings grew tremendously over the last decade. Here, we focus on one popular neurostimulation method: transcranial direct ...
Parietal Contributions to Visual Working Memory Depend on Task Difficulty
The nature of parietal contributions to working memory (WM) remain poorly understood but of considerable interest. We previously reported that posterior parietal damage selectively impaired WM probed by recognition (Berryhill ...
Frontoparietal tDCS Benefits Visual Working Memory in Older Adults With Low Working Memory Capacity
Working memory (WM) permits maintenance of information over brief delays and is an essential executive function. Unfortunately, WM is subject to age-related decline. Some evidence supports the use of transcranial direct ...
