Transcranial alternating current stimulation uses electrodes to deliver small amounts of electricity through the brain and has been shown to enhance slow-wave sleep and improve memory in healthy adults. This study will investigate the effect of stimulation on sleep, thinking and memory, mood, and quality of life in cognitively normal older adults and in individuals with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Participants will undergo either transcranial alternating current stimulation or sham stimulation during slow-wave sleep and EEG test before and after each night of study session (up to 24 weeks from enrollment for each subject).
