Cognitive Rehabilitation During Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation


Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to explore whether active transcranial direct current stimulation during cognitive rehabilitation tasks can boost cognitive enhancement without severe side effects in mild cognitive impairment or mild dementia patients.

Detailed Study Description

This study explores the additive effect of transcranial direct stimulation compared to sham stimulation during cognitive rehabilitation tasks in mild cognitive impairment or mild dementia patients. Potential participants are recruited by physicians' referral or self-entry. Informed consent by a clinical research coordinator and research physician is performed followed by screening. Participants who passed screening go through 10 sessions of active or sham transcranial direct current stimulation and are evaluated their cognitive function at screening, at the end, and two weeks after the intervention. For quality assurance, independent researcher regularly monitor and audit as participants are enrolled in the trial.
