Gamma tACS applied during the acquisition of a novel motor skill.

Link – Cerebellar transcranial alternating current stimulation in the gamma range applied during the acquisition of a novel motor skill. Abstract The development of novel strategies to augment motor training success is of great interest for healthy persons and neurological patients. A promising approach is the combination of training with transcranial electric stimulation. However, limited […]

tACS in patients with negative symptoms in schizophrenia

Link – Gamma transcranial alternating current stimulation in patients with negative symptoms in schizophrenia: A case series. Abstract Non-invasive transcranial brain stimulation therapies, such as transcranial direct current stimulation, have been found to improve negative symptoms in schizophrenia. Another new technique is transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS). Here we report a series of three patient […]
