Need to Revise Envelope tACS Methods.

Link – Lacking Effects of Envelope Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation Indicate the Need to Revise Envelope Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation Methods. Abstract In recent years, several studies have reported beneficial effects of transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) in experiments regarding sound and speech perception. A new development in this field is envelope-tACS: The goal of […]

Anodal tDCS enhances the functional brain network communication

Link – Anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (atDCS) enhances the efficiency of functional brain network communication during auditory attentional control. Abstract Attentional control is crucial for selectively attending to relevant information when our brain is confronted with a multitude of sensory signals. Graph-theoretical measures provide a powerful tool for investigating the efficiency of brain network […]

tDCS elicits stimulus-specific enhancement of cortical plasticity.

Link – Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) elicits stimulus-specific enhancement of cortical plasticity. Neuroimage. 2020 Feb 04;:116598 Authors: Boroda E, Sponheim SR, Fiecas M, Lim KO Abstract BACKGROUND: Deficits in plasticity underlie many severe psychiatric disorders. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a promising method for modulating plasticity. However, given its non-focal nature, there are […]
