Understanding occipitoparietal alpha oscillations and enhancing sustained attention using electroencephalography and transcranial alternating current stimulation

Abstract:

This project studied the effects of 10-Hz (alpha)-tACS, delivered over occipitoparietal cortex, on sustained attention. Poor performance on all visual tasks used in this project had previously been associated with increased EEG alpha power. I therefore assumed that alpha-tACS would reliably impair visual task performance. However, my results did not support this prediction. In my first two experiments (Chapters 4 & 5), alpha-tACS was found to reduce the slope of deteriorations in task ...
