The Predictive Value of Brain Excitation Levels for Electrical Brain Stimulation

A Replication of the SHARP (Strengthening Human Adaptive Reasoning and Problem-Solving)-Program
1 March 2023 until 12 December 2024
Project type

The research project focuses on the predictive value of excitatory/inhibitory (E/I) levels in the brain for the effectiveness of electrical brain stimulation in cognitive training. The study utilizes data from the SHARP (Strengthening Human Adaptive Reasoning and Problem-Solving) program, where various electrical stimulation techniques (tRNS, tDCS, and tACS) and cognitive training were employed. This cognitive training involves a combination of different executive functions in a computer-designed game to enhance participant engagement. The primary goal of the SHARP program was to activate neural pathways associated with executive functions to induce neural plasticity. This project investigates whether the outcomes of different brain stimulation techniques can be explained by excitatory/inhibitory levels in the brain.
