Dr Claire Hanley

Swansea University

Dr Claire Hanley conducts research into neural plasticity; incorporating neuroimaging techniques and non-invasive brain stimulation methods to determine how our brains adapt as part of the ageing process. Claire started her academic journey by studying for an undergraduate Psychology degree at Swansea University, where she now works as a Lecturer. She then went on to gain a Masters in Brain Imaging and Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Birmingham. Following her Masters training, she worked as a research assistant at the Centre for Ageing and Neuroscience (Cam-CAN) at the University of Cambridge, before completing her PhD in Advanced Neuroim�aging Methods at Cardiff University�s Brain Imaging Research Centre (CUBRIC). Having developed a track record of conducting cutting-edge research at top UK institutions, Claire has published her research in high-impact journals, presented at national and international conferences, and has received media coverage via BBC One Wales and The Conversation.

Stimulating the Ageing Brain

The success of interventions to prevent age-related cognitive decline is highly dependent on their ability to aid adaptive neuroplasticity, by maintaining existing brain function for as long as possible. This seminar will focus on one of the most promising neuroenhancement techniques in this context, transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), and how to optimise its application in relation to ageing.
