dc.descriptionA research study under Geoffrey Woodman (PSY 295/296) examining the link between trans-Cranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) and the transfer of information between working memory and long term memory. This paper examines tDCS as it affects episodic image learning and long term efficiency in memory transfer.en_US
dc.description.abstractTrans-cranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a method of electrical stimulation directed through a specific lobe or section of the brain in order to excite neurons and bring about a behavioral change. tDCS has experienced some success as a treatment for various conditions, particularly conditions such as depression, anxiety, and schizophrenia. More importantly, however, tDCS has been shown to help improve cognitive skills as well, particularly in memory based laboratory tasks. Here I propose a study that will analyze the relationship between tDCS and the transfer of information from sensory perception to working and long term memory. This will address a deficit in literature concerning the precise mechanisms that tDCS affects.en_US
