Neural substrates of paired decision-making training and brain stimulation (2018–2021)

Abstract:
While combined behavioural training and brain stimulation can improve a range of cognitive processes, it not yet known how brain function changes as a result, and how such changes are related to brain structure. This project aims to provide definitive evidence on the efficacy of cognitive training, brain stimulation and their combination for enhancing performance, and will reveal the underlying neural processes involved. Outcomes and benefits include identifying the functional neural mechanisms and structural correlates of these effects for individuals and groups, informing cognitive training and stimulation approaches in a range of current settings, and a possible means of reducing the effects of age-related cognitive decline.
