Theta band stimulation for improving associative memory

Problems with associative memory is common in diseases where degeneration of brain tissue occurs. It is also known that proper theta-band brain wave oscillations within the neural networks of the brain associated with associative memory performance is key to successfully encoding memory.

tACS is being studied for targeting alpha oscillations in patients with MDD

In patients with major depressive disorder (MDD), abnormal, elevated oscillating activity of the alpha frequency brain waves have been observed—mostly located in the left frontal regions of the brain. This increased alpha oscillation strength in depressed patients have been correlated with a state of low neuronal activity
