Aprinda Indahlastari’s art shines in annual scientific computation image contest
UF College of Public Health & Health Professions online
An illustration by Aprinda Indahlastari, Ph.D., an assistant professor of clinical and health psychology at the University of Florida College of Public Health and Health Professions, has been selected for the annual Coalition for Academic Scientific Computation image contest. Indahlastari’s image, which depicts electrical current being distributed across the brain during a non-invasive treatment designed to improve cognitive health, appears on page 12 of the coalition’s 2024 brochure.
GPU Hackathon helps accelerate brain research
UF College of Public Health and Health Professions
In January 2022, CHP’s researchers Dr. Adam Woods and Dr. Aprinda Indahlastari participated in Georgia Tech’s GPU Hackathon seeking to optimize computational brain science applications, while teaming up with UF’s Artificial Intelligence Initiative partners at NVIDIA and OpenACC.
UF, NVIDIA partner to speed brain research using AI
UF College of Public Health and Health Professions online
University of Florida researchers joined forces with scientists at NVIDIA, UF’s partner in its artificial intelligence initiative, and the OpenACC organization to significantly accelerate brain science as part of the Georgia Tech GPU Hackathon held last month. The hackathon is designed to help computational scientists and researchers optimize their applications.

Dr. Aprinda Indahlastari’s image model of transcranial direct current stimulation has been selected and published in the annual Coalition for Academic Scientific Computation brochure on page 12. “Constructing models like this has been a passion of mine since my graduate studies, making it particularly inspiring to showcase my work to a general audience in a way that is both informative and artistic."
The impact of a tDCS and cognitive training intervention on task-based functional connectivityGeroscience
Jessica N. Kraft, et. al
Declines in several cognitive domains, most notably processing speed, occur in non-pathological aging. Given the exponential growth of the older adult population, declines in cognition serve as a significant public health issue that must be addressed. Promising studies have shown that cognitive training in older adults, particularly using the useful field of view (UFOV) paradigm, can improve cognition with moderate to large effect sizes.
A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation to Remediate Age-Related Cognitive Decline in Healthy Older AdultsNeuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment
Aprinda Indahlastari, et al.
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has been proposed as a possible method for remediating age-associated cognitive decline in the older adult population. While tDCS has shown potential for improving cognitive functions in healthy older adults, stimulation outcomes on various cognitive domains have been mixed.
Impact of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation and Cognitive Training on Frontal Lobe Neurotransmitter ConcentrationsFront Aging Neuroscience
Aprinda Indahlastari, et al.
This study examines the impact of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) combined with cognitive training on neurotransmitter concentrations in the prefrontal cortex. Twenty-three older adults were randomized to either active-tDCS or sham-tDCS in combination with cognitive training for 2 weeks. Active-tDCS was delivered over F3 (cathode) and F4 (anode) electrode placements for 20 min at 2 mA intensity.
