Alpha-tACS effect on inhibitory control

Link – Alpha-tACS effect on inhibitory control and feasibility of administration in community outpatient substance use treatment. Abstract BACKGROUND: Deficits in inhibitory control (IC) and distress tolerance (DT) are associated with substance use disorders (SUD) and post-treatment return to substance use. Transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) modulates the neural oscillations that are associated with the […]

Abstract Background and Objective: Patients under methadone maintenance therapy (MMT) are susceptible to several complications including mental disturbances and risk of relapse. The present study was designed to evaluate […]

Noninvasive brain stimulation in alcohol craving

Link – Noninvasive brain stimulation in alcohol craving: A systematic review and meta-analysis. Abstract BACKGROUND: Alcohol dependence (AD) is characterized by a set of physical and behavioral symptoms, which may include withdrawal, tolerance and craving. Recently, noninvasive brain stimulation (NIBS) methods, namely transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), have been investigated […]

Biomarkers and neuromodulation techniques in substance use disorders.

Link – Biomarkers and neuromodulation techniques in substance use disorders. Abstract Addictive disorders are a severe health concern. Conventional therapies have just moderate success and the probability of relapse after treatment remains high. Brain stimulation techniques, such as transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) and Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS), have been shown to be effective in […]
