Utilizing tACS and fNIRS to Investigate Human Sensory Adaptation.

Link – Utilizing Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation and Functional Neuroimaging to Investigate Human Sensory Adaptation. Abstract Sensory adaptation is the reduction of neural activity after repeated exposure to a stimulus. In a recent study, Kar et al. (2019) found that implementation of 10Hz-tACS to the human middle temporal cortex (hMT+) decreased sensory adaptation and increased […]

10 Hz tACS facilitates tactile temporal order judgment.

Link – 10 Hz transcranial alternating current stimulation over posterior parietal cortex facilitates tactile temporal order judgment. Abstract The temporal order judgment (TOJ) task has been widely used to investigate spatial attentional bias and the sensitivity of temporal discrimination during the processing of bilateral tactile information. Previous studies have shown that TOJ is impaired in patients […]
