HD-tDCS is a non-invasive electrical brain stimulation technique that allows for focal current delivery to precise brain areas and consequently modulates behaviour. The human brain adapts constantly to changing environmental demands in order to achieve flexible and goal-directed behaviour. The neural processes guiding this cognitive flexibility are collectively referred to as cognitive control. The talk will focus on the impact of this novel HD-tDCS set-up on adaptive cognitive control and neural activity. I will present findings from my PhD work, which demonstrate that HD-tDCS enhances this remarkable feature in young and elderly adults.
