Word Retrieval and the Mental Lexicon: A tDCS-based Study in Different Stages of Age and Performance
This research project deals with the multimodal network of the mental lexicon and the access to it for learning and remembering of words. While testing the verbal working memory of three groups of participants in different stages of age and performance the learning and recognition of words will be manipulated. With the use of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) cortical excitability of specific areas will be modulated which leads to in- or decrease of signal flow in certain cortical networks.
