Investigating the role of network-targeted stimulation in age-related memory decline

Takeaway

  • Age-related recollection impairments are causally related to hippocampal-cortical network function in older adults, with network-targeted transcranial magnetic stimulation selectively improving recollection.

Why this matters

  • These findings provide further information on optimizing the effectiveness of noninvasive stimulation to treat age-related memory impairment and increase our understanding of the hippocampal-cortical networks that support episodic memory throughout life.
