Kuri Takahashi receives International Brain Stimulation Best Poster Award
At this year’s International Brain Stimulation Conference in Portugal at the end of February, Kuri Takahashi, a PhD student in the Department of Psychology and Neurosciences, was awarded for her poster presentation. Kuri Takahashi’s research aims to develop a novel non-invasive stimulation protocol to induce and stabilise delta activity in the human brain. Her recent study showed that the new stimulation protocol was able to enhance delta EEG activity. Delta frequency is the predominant movement in the NREM sleep stage and is involved in the consolidation of declarative memory. Future work will focus on the application of the delta stimulation protocol to studies of information processing during sleep and sleep disorders.
