Prefrontal brain stimulation has hemisphere-specific effects on memory accuracy and awareness


  • Right prefrontal transcranial brain stimulation (TBS) improves episodic visuospatial memory accuracy over sham or left prefrontal TBS.

Why this matters

  • This study offers support for using noninvasive prefrontal TBS as a potential cognitive neurorehabilitation technique and demonstrates the resulting memory effects are specific to hemisphere appropriate stimulation for the memoranda being used.
