Abstract

The transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) technique can reportedly modulate working memory in both healthy adults and clinical groups; however, the efficacy of such interventions is complicated by heterogenous findings in the literature. A combined tDCS and event-related potential approach, focusing on how tDCS modulates subprocesses of working memory, was proposed as a potential response to these mixed outcomes. This thesis deals with complex methodological issues arising from combining electrophysiological techniques and demonstrates both the utility and challenges of this novel approach with some potential to contribute to our understanding of heterogeneous findings in the tDCS and working memory field.
