Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation to Enhance Cognition in Mild Cognitive Impairment
Not Provided
The study will examine whether the effects of computerized brain training are enhanced when training is combined with mild brain stimulation in patients with mild cognitive impairment. We hypothesize that this combination will produce greater improvements in cognitive functioning than computerized brain training alone.
