Méadhbh Brosnan (ESR 11)
Méadhbh is exploring neurorehabilitation protocols to enhance aspects of attention and awareness in ageing. Her PhD focuses on the potential of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), a non-invasive method of brain stimulation, to enhance sustained attention in both healthy older adults and in individuals who have experienced stroke. She is using simultaneous tDCS-EEG (electroencephalography) measurements to assess changes in brain activity occurring with stimulation.
