Several studies investigated the efficacy of interventions on memory deficits in aging, however, since few years ago they had almost exclusively focused on the cognitive approach. Recently, neuropsychology and, in particular, non invasive cerebral stimulation techniques, opened new perspectives of intervention. The aim of this paper is to analyze the literature on the cerebral stimulation as a tool of intervention for memory decline in older adults. Evidences suggest the efficacy of these approaches in treating older adults with Mild Cognitive Impairment and Alzheimer disease. They also offer interesting ideas for the development of new approaches consisting in the combination of classic interventions and cerebral stimulation techniques both in treating normal and pathological aging.
Keywords: Aging, brain stimulation, training, memory impairment
