    美国佛罗里达大学使用tDCS做临床实验,以延迟或阻止老年痴呆症的发生。研究人员通过使用tDCS,对参与者进行认知训练,以提高大脑的神经认知功能,从延缓或阻止老年痴呆症的发病。研究人员教参与者一系列的“大脑游戏以刺激大脑。这是一种新颖的方法帮助人们由于年龄问题而产生的疾病。

Title:Can we delay or prevent dementia?

“The primary goal is to evaluate how pairing a form of non-invasive electrical brain stimulation, known as transcranial direct current stimulation, with cognitive training may enhance the brain's neurocognitive function in our participants and potentially slow or prevent onset of dementia,” Woods said. “We teach the participants a series of ‘brain games’ while they undergo brain stimulation. Using state-of-the-art brain imaging methods, we look at how the participants’ brains are impacted by the training games and brain stimulation that we ask them to do over a three-month period.  The research question is, can this type of brain training and stimulation slow down the brain’s aging?
