If you’re between 55-80 years old, then a University of Queensland clinical trial might be just the thing for you.

 

Researchers are trialling a unique, non-invasive brain stimulation technique in improving memory in language learning for older adults.

 

Studies indicate that stimulation (tDCS) can boost neuroplasticity, a key mechanism in regulating learning, memory and recovery of brain function.

 

Duration: Two 90-minute sessions measuring various aspects of cognitive function before and after stimulation, with $50 reimbursement.


Location: UQ Centre for Clinical Research, Herston. Parking can be covered if driving in.

 

Requirements:

Native English speaker
No current psychiatric or neurological conditions (or psychotropic drugs)
