|Official Title:||Impact of Transcranial Slow Oscillating Stimulation on Memory Consolidation During Nocturnal Slow Wave Sleep in Patients With Mild Cognitive Impairments(MCI)|
|Study Start Date :||April 2013|

Experimental: 0,75 Hz stimulation
slow transcranial oscillating stimulation (~0,75Hz) during periods of Slow Wave Sleep
Other Name: oscillating direct current brain stimulation
Sham Comparator: SHAM stimulation
SHAM stimulation during periods of Slow Wave Sleep
- Retention of declarative memories after 0.75 Hz stimulation during SWS, vs after sham stimulation during SWS [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]Retention between stimulation conditions (0.75 Hz during SWS, vs sham stimulation during SWS) in the declarative memory task.
- Amount of Slow wave Sleep, spindels, eeg-correlates, further memory systems [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
- Amount of slow wave sleep assessed by standard polysomnographic criteria in 0,75 Hz vs SHAM stimulation during SWS.
- Spindel activity during sleep indicated via several spindel parameters like number, duration, frequency of spindles; compared between 0,75 Hz and SHAM stimulation during SWS.
- Neuronal correlates (EEG-power in slow oscillation frequency bands induced by 0,75 Hz vs SHAM stimulation during SWS; EEG-correlates of encoding and retrieval of a declarative memory task).
- Performance in further memory systems (procedural), compared between 0,75 Hz and SHAM stimulation during SWS.
