When I arrived I was instantly welcomed by everybody whom I was going to work with.The entire faculty is very helpful and supportive. I was given the opportunity to design a project with my direct supervisor and run it with other colleagues. In this experiment we used a tDCS (transcranial direct current stimulation), a non-invasive electrical based technique, to stimulate different regions of our participant’s brains while they completed different response inhibition tasks. The aim of the experiment was to see whether the particular stimulation to the parietal lobe or dorsolateral prefrontal cortex increased their cognitive ability in these tasks.
