Effects of tDCS on Visual Neuroplasticity in Schizophrenia.

Link – Effects of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation on Visual Neuroplasticity in Schizophrenia. Abstract People with schizophrenia (SZ) exhibit visual processing abnormalities that affect their daily functioning and remediating these deficits might help to improve functioning. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a potential tool for perceptual enhancement for this purpose, though there are no […]

Conscious perception of flickering stimuli SSR

Link – Conscious perception of flickering stimuli in binocular rivalry and continuous flash suppression is not affected by tACS-induced SSR modulation. Conscious Cogn. 2020 May 22;82:102953 Authors: Schauer G, Ogawa CY, Tsuchiya N, Bartels A Abstract The content of conscious perception is known to correlate with steady-state responses (SSRs), yet their causal relationship remains unclear. […]

No effect of repetitive tDCS on daily smoking behaviour

Link – No effect of repetitive tDCS on daily smoking behaviour in light smokers: A placebo controlled EMA study. Abstract INTRODUCTION: The effectiveness of repetitive transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) on reducing smoking behaviour has been studied with mixed results. Smoking behaviour is influenced by affect and context, therefore we choose to use mobile ecological […]

A systematic review of interventions for adults who stutter.

Link – A systematic review of interventions for adults who stutter. Abstract PURPOSE: To examine the effectiveness of (i) face to face interventions (ii) models of service delivery and (iii) psychological treatments combined with speech-focused interventions for adults who stutter. METHODS: Five electronic databases and three clinical trial registries were searched. Systematic reviews, randomised controlled […]

tDCS in Chronic Low Back Pain.

Link – The Effectiveness of Attention Bias Modification with and without Trans Cranial Direct Current Stimulation in Chronic Low Back Pain. Abstract Objective: The present study aimed to compare the effect of ABM (attention bias modification) with and without tDCS (transcranial direct current stimulation) on attention bias, pain intensity, and disability due to pain and […]

Effects of Acute Exercise and Brain Stimulation on Executive Function

Link – Combined and Isolated Effects of Acute Exercise and Brain Stimulation on Executive Function in Healthy Young Adults. Abstract Abstract: Acute cognitive enhancement has been sought by healthy young individuals to improve academic and professional performance. Among several methods, physical exercise interventions and transcranial direct current brain stimulation (tDCS) have shown promise in impacting […]

tDCS over the inferior frontal gyri did not improve response inhibition.

Link – tDCS over the inferior frontal gyri and visual cortices did not improve response inhibition. Abstract The ability to cancel an already initiated response is central to flexible behavior. While several different behavioral and neural markers have been suggested to quantify the latency of the stopping process, it remains unclear if they quantify the […]

tVNS Does Not Affect Verbal Memory Performance

Link – Transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation Does Not Affect Verbal Memory Performance in Healthy Volunteers. Abstract Introduction: Invasive vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) improves word recognition memory in patients with epilepsy. Recent studies with transcutaneous VNS (tVNS) have also shown positive effects on various subdomains of cognitive functioning in healthy volunteers. In this randomized, controlled, crossover […]

tDCS on paradigm transfer following multi-session backward recall training.

Link – The effects of transcranial direct current stimulation on within- and cross-paradigm transfer following multi-session backward recall training. Abstract Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has been shown to enhance the efficacy and generalisation of working memory (WM) training, but there has been little systematic investigation into how coupling task-specific WM training with stimulation impacts […]

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 […]
