Cortico-cerebellar Networks Drive Sensorimotor Learning in Speech

Published in: Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, Volume 30, Issue 4, April 2018, 540-551 Abstract “The motor cortex and cerebellum are thought to be critical for learning and maintaining motor behaviors. Here we use transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to test the role of the motor cortex and cerebellum in sensorimotor learning in speech. During productions of “head,” “bed,” and “dead,” the first formant of the vowel sound was altered in real time toward the first formant of the vowel sound in “had,” “bad,” and “dad.” Compensatory changes in first and second formant production were used as a measure of motor adaptation.… Read More

Poststimulation time interval-dependent effects of motor cortex anodal tDCS on reaction-time task performance

Published in: Cognitive, Affective, & Behavioral Neuroscience, Volume 18, Issue 1, 167-175 Abstract “Anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) induces long-term potentiation-like plasticity, which is associated with long-lasting effects on different cognitive, emotional, and motor performances. Specifically, tDCS applied over the motor cortex is considered to improve reaction time in simple and complex tasks. The timing of tDCS relative to task performance could determine the efficacy of tDCS to modulate performance. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of a single session of anodal tDCS (1.5 mA, for 15 min) applied over the left primary motor cortex (M1)… Read More
