Sensory Stimulation to Improve Brain Function in Older Adults with Memory Problems: A Feasibility Study
Role Description: The primary purpose of this study is to inform a future, larger-scale clinical intervention study. Specifically, this study will 1) establish the feasibility of delivering an intervention consisting of a combination of visual, auditory, and/or tactile sensory stimulation to older adults with mild-to-moderate mental impairment, and 2) produce preliminary data on the acute effects of exposure to these sensory modalities on EEG-measured brain activity within this population.

Non-invasive modulation of brain network activity to improve balance in aging and Parkinson’s diease
Role Description: The aims of this grant are 1) to examine the effects of Parkinson’s disease (PD) on dual-task performance when standing and walking, and 2) to examine the effects of a single-session of “multifocal” t transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) on the dual task costs to the control of standing and walking in older adults with and without PD.
