Usable Technology for Brain Aging & Dementia with Ben Hampstead PhD
“We’re actually able to change the brain, even in the face of things like Alzheimer’s disease.” This was the statement made by our guest for this show, Dr. Ben Hampstead. Dr. Hampstead is a professor at the Univ of Michigan and leads a lab that is doing several studies using transcranial direct current stimulation for mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s, and other forms of cognitive impairment. We talk about his work and compare it to some of our own results with our patients. Exciting and thought-provoking!
