Invitation to apply for a PhD Studentship Bursary (3 years) Project area: Cognitive Neuroscience; a study of the neural mechanisms of episodic memory enhancement induced by transcranial electrical stimulation. The Bursary: Funding is available for UK/EU and International* students at Home/EU rates for three years full-time study or part-time equivalent for five years. The Bursary includes tuition fee waiver at £4,052 and stipend at £16,057 for 2015/16).* The study will be supervised by Dr Marco Sandrini. http://www.roehampton.ac.uk/staff/Marco-Sandrini. Informal enquiries can be made to Dr. Sandrini at Marco.Sandrini@roehampton.ac.uk The research study: Episodic memory is critical to daily life functioning. This form of long-term memory also displays the largest degree of age-related decline. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) over the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) has demonstrated efficacy in enhancing episodic memory in healthy young and older…
