three MRI brain scans, and one blood draw. You would be randomly assigned to receive
either 14 guided, non-invasive, low-risk brain stimulation sessions (20 minutes of
stimulation per session) – or 14 sham/placebo sessions (30 to 40 seconds of stimulation
per session) over a 4-week period. All sessions will take place with a study team

Additional Study Details
Neuropsychiatric symptoms in patients with mild memory difficulties, especially those
worsening over time, are associated with more rapid cognitive and functional decline
and a greater risk of Alzheimer's disease. Effectively managing multiple symptoms
requires a solid understanding of the shared brain mechanism across neuropsychiatric
