Electrostimulation May Boost Working Memory in Senior People
A new study from Boston University, US, demonstrates that electrostimulation may improve the working memory in people in their 70s.
In the course of the study, the researchers asked a group of people in their 20s and a group in their 60s and 70s to complete a bunch of memory tasks requiring them to view an image, and then, after a short pause, to identify whether a second image was different from the first one.
At baseline, the results of the young participants were significantly higher than the results of the older group. However, when the older adults received 25 minutes of mild stimulation delivered through scalp electrodes and personalized to their individual brain circuits, the difference between the two groups vanished.
