Abstract:

Prospective memory (PM) refers to a complex cognitive ability that underpins the delayed execution of previously formulated intentions. PM performance declines early in normal aging and this process is accentuated in Alzheimer's disease. The left frontopolar cortex (BA10) has been consistently assigned a major role in PM functioning, but whether it can be noninvasively modulated to enhance PM performance in aged people has not been addressed so far. Here, we investigated the effects of modulatin

Abstract:

In the present study, causal roles of both the primary somatosensory cortex (SI) and the posterior parietal cortex (PPC) were investigated in atactile unimodal working memory (WM) task. Individual magnetic resonance imaging-based single-pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation (spTMS) was applied, respectively, to the left SI (ipsilateral to ta
