Functional Imaging Scan

A functional imaging scan from a neuroimaging study performed by the Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation (NIBS) Team at the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, shows the increase in brain activation from actual transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) compared with that of a sham consumer product. The NIBS lab, part of the Cognitive Performance Optimization Section, Applied Neuroscience Branch, Warfighter Interface Division, Human Effectiveness Directorate of the 711th Human Performance Wing, explores how directed electrical stimulation to the human brain affects cognition, fatigue, mood and other areas with the end goal of improving warfighter awareness, memory and focus.
