Cognitive training combined with non-invasive brain stimulation for the treatment of late life depression (LLD)
Two Jerusalem-Melbourne Joint PhD positions are available: one with The Hebrew University of Jerusalem as home institution and another with The University of Melbourne as home institution. Candidates are required to spend a minimum of 12 months at the host institution.
Project Description: The two distinct, yet related, PhD projects will be devoted to studying different aspects of applying a novel treatment approach, combining psychosocial training along with non-invasive brain stimulation to improve outcomes related to mental health and cognitive status in LLD. Both PhD candidates will collect data using the same training paradigm in both Israel and Australia while focusing on different research questions. The two studies will be conducted independently; however, it is our hope that our design will subsequently allow us to pool data from both studies and evaluate outcomes on a larger sample.
