Investigating the Effect of Cognitive Training Simultaneously with Application of either Active or Sham Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation on the Executive Brain Functions in Dementia Population

Built upon our successful pilot projects, the goal of this project is to investigate the effect of transcranial alternative current stimulation (tACS) paired with cognitive exercises in a placebo-controlled study on individuals with dementia, and develop novel technologies to monitor its effects and also predict a patient’s response to a treatment at baseline. This project can lead to an efficient optimized personalized treatment strategy for dementia.
