In the Brain and Language lab we search variety of populations in order to better understand the neural network underline language processing. We use the device of tDCS- transcranial Direct Current Stimulation. tDCS is a noninvasive, painless technique to induce neuromodulatory changes using a low intensity electrical current. Using tDCS we can either increase brain excitability (anodal tDCS) or decrease it (cathodal tDCS).
Major research applications are in aging, Parkinson disease, speech perception, PTSD- Posttraumatic stress disorder and so forth.
The Brain and Language lab is in the department of communication disorders.
The lab founded by Dr. Adi Lifshitz-Ben-Basat on 2015.
