Improvement of Memory with Transcranial Electrical Brain Stimulation in Patients with Alzheimer’s Disease
The authors showed that gamma frequency transcranial alternating current stimulation targeting the precuneus in patients with Alzheimer’s disease improved measures of immediate and delayed verbal memory as well as associative memory for faces. Additionally, neurophysiological measurements of cholinergic transmission improved. Apolipoprotein E genotype and baseline cognitive performance were correlated with treatment response. Memory improvement was correlated both with increases in gamma frequency power in posterior cortical regions and spatial overlap between the modeled electric field distribution and the precuneus target site.
