The effect of noninvasive brain stimulation on narrative speech production

02 October 2018

We are looking for healthy older adults aged 65 and over to participate in a study investigating the effect of transcranial direct current stimulation, a safe and non-invasive brain stimulation technique, on narrative speech production. We are investigating how tDCS can affect narrative production, and whether these effects vary when stimulating different areas of the brain. This study will help inform future studies with people who have language difficulties due to brain injury such as stroke.

Requirements

  • Age 65 and over
  • Right handed
  • Healthy, with no past neurological problems or brain injury e.g stroke, seizure
  • Be able to attend 4 separate hour long sessions (1 session every 2 weeks) at King's College London
