Abstract: The intervention proposal is aimed at Jeremy, a 27-year-old student and athlete at the University of Cambridge. A few years ago, he suffered a stroke which damaged an area near the hippocampus, causing him an anterograde amnesia and preventing him from carrying out his plans for the future. Patients suffering from anterograde amnesia may not remember what has happened recently, but they are able to remember part of their past, this is, what happened before the injury. Distant memories that are not stored in the hippocampus remain intact, but cannot accumulate new memories. The results from the neuropsychological evaluation showed us as major alterations the episodic memory and learning capacity in Jeremy. The objective of the intervention was to demonstrate how noninvasive neurostimulation through transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) enhances the results of conventional neuropsychological rehabilitation and to know the impact that combined treatment has on recovery in patients with classic amnesic syndrome compared to other types of treatments. The specific objective of the intervention with Jeremy is to improve the symptomatology it presents by allowing him in some way to do without the compensatory tools and to provide him with some peace of mind as to his future. The intervention will consist of applying tDCS at the same time that we apply neuropsychological rehabilitation through exercises in order to improve altered cognitive alterations. Conclusion, this type of intervention enhances the results of conventional nerupsychological rehabilitation and reduces treatment times in patients.
