Transcranial alternating current stimulation of α but not β frequency

Link – Transcranial alternating current stimulation of α but not β frequency sharpens multiple visual functions. Abstract BACKGROUND: Transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) can entrain and enhance cortical oscillatory activity in a frequency-dependent manner. In our previous study (Nakazono et al., 2016), 20 Hz (β) tACS significantly increased excitability of primary motor cortex compared with 10 Hz (α) […]

Effects of beta-tACS on Corticospinal Excitability

Link – Effects of beta-tACS on corticospinal excitability: A meta-analysis. Abstract Over the past decade several studies have shown that transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) delivered at the beta (15-25 Hz) frequency range can increase corticospinal excitability of the primary motor cortex (M1). The aim of this study was to systematically quantify the effect size of […]
