Effects of 2mA & 4mA tDCS on Muscle Activity

Link – Different Effects of 2 mA and 4 mA Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation on Muscle Activity and Torque in a Maximal Isokinetic Fatigue Task. Abstract Studies investigating the effects of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) on fatigue and muscle activity have elicited measurable improvements using stimulation intensities ≤2 mA and submaximal effort tasks. The […]

tDCS at 4 mA Induces Greater Leg Muscle Fatigability

Link – Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation at 4 mA Induces Greater Leg Muscle Fatigability in Women Compared to Men. Abstract Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has previously shown different cortical excitability and neuropsychological effects between women and men. However, the sex-specific effects of tDCS on leg muscle fatigability has not been investigated. The purpose of […]

Long-term tDCS – better effects with intensified protocols?

Link – Induction of long-term potentiation-like plasticity in the primary motor cortex with repeated anodal transcranial direct current stimulation – better effects with intensified protocols? Abstract BACKGROUND: A single session of anodal tDCS induces LTP-like plasticity which lasts for about one hour, while repetition of stimulation within a time interval of 30 minutes results in […]
