Event Details

Many of us fear losing our cognitive abilities. Advances in experimental techniques are being paired with cognitive training to see if lasting measurable benefits can be found.
"Our work in healthy young and older adults pairs working memory training with transcranial direct current stimulation," shares Dr. Marian Berryhill who will be leading this session for Sierra College Insights. "Although early, these data indicate that some benefits can be found and they extend to unpracticed skills."
