Understanding and Modulating Cortical Dynamics of Dual-task Standing in Older Adults with Mild Cognitive Impairment
Join a study exploring the impact of non-invasive brain stimulation on walking and balance.
Are you age 65 to 85 years and/or concerned about your memory and thinking?
This study of non-invasive brain stimulation at the Hinda and Arthur Marcus Insitute for Aging Research in Boston is seeking participants.
The goal is to determine whether transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation (tACS), a type of non-invasive brain stimulation, improves balance and walking.
You may be eligible to participate if you are either 65 to 85 years old without any significant health conditions and/or concerned about your memory and thinking.
Participation will include two visits over two weeks:
- The first visit will consist of health interviews and assessments of walking, balance, memory, and a 20-minute session of non-invasive brain stimulation
- The second visit will consist of a 20-minute session of non-invasive brain stimulation with assessments of walking and balance before and after the session
Participation is paid up to $100. Parking and transportation can be provided.
