The correlations between the increased posterior cingulate cortex (PCC) activity and memory retrieval are well documented, while the causal relationship has yet to be established in the literature. The present study testing this casual relationship using the High-Definition Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (HD-tDCS) targeting PCC during memory retrieval. Our results demonstrate for the first time a causal relationship between PCC and memory retrieval.

Coffee and snacks will be provided. Please feel free to bring your lunch.
