Effects of tDCS on working memory performance in healthy participants.

Link – Effects of 1 mA and 2 mA transcranial direct current stimulation on working memory performance in healthy participants. Abstract Anodal transcranial current stimulation (tDCS) to the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) has been shown to enhance working memory (WM) in neuropsychiatric patients. In healthy populations, however, tDCS obtains inconclusive results, mostly due to […]

tDCS Reduces Motor Slowing in Athletes and non-Athletes.

Link – Anodal transcranial direct current stimulation reduces motor slowing in athletes and non-athletes. Abstract BACKGROUND: Motor fatigability describes a phenomenon that occurs when exhaustive exercise or physically demanding tasks are executed over an extended period of time. Concerning fast repetitive movements, it is noticeable by a reduction in movement speed (motor slowing, MoSlo) and […]

Brain Stimulation to Modulate Food Intake and Eating Behavior.

Link – Brain Stimulation to Modulate Food Intake and Eating Behavior. Abstract PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Appetitive behaviors are mediated through homeostatic and reward signaling of brain circuits. There has been increasing interest in the use of neuromodulation techniques aimed at targeting brain regions such as the lateral prefrontal and subcortical regions associated with dysregulation of […]

tDCS induced synaptic plasticity in the sensorimotor cortex

Link – Direct current stimulation-induced synaptic plasticity in the sensorimotor cortex: structure follows function. Abstract BACKGROUND: Non-invasive direct current stimulation (DCS) of the brain induces functional plasticity in vitro and facilitates motor learning across species. The effect of DCS on structural synaptic plasticity is currently unknown. OBJECTIVE: This study addresses the effects and the underlying mechanisms […]

Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation Effect on Virtual Hand Illusion.

Link – Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation Effect on Virtual Hand Illusion. Abstract Virtual reality (VR) is effectively used to evoke the mirror illusion, and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) synergistically facilitates this illusion. This study investigated whether a mirror virtual hand illusion (MVHI) induced by an immersive, first-person-perspective, virtual mirror system could be modulated by […]

Comparing tDCS on Opioid-Addicted Patients.

Link – Comparing the Efficacy of Anodal, Cathodal, and Sham Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation on Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor and Psychological Symptoms in Opioid-Addicted Patients. Abstract Introduction: Today, addiction to opioids is a serious problem all over the world. Unfortunately, the consumption of these drugs and the number of addicted people have drastically increased. This research […]

Neurofeedback cf tDCS on Sleep Quality of Patients With Migraine.

Link – Comparing the Effectiveness of Neurofeedback and Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation on Sleep Quality of Patients With Migraine. Abstract Introduction: Migraine is considered one of the most common primary headache disorders. Migraine attacks may occur due to a lack of sleep. Furthermore, sleep is regarded as one of the smoothing factors of migraine pain. […]

tDCS Improves Reward Processing in Children With ADHD.

Link – Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation Improves Reward Processing in Children With ADHD. Abstract Objective: Individuals with ADHD have deficits in reward processing and related cognitive tasks such as delay discounting and risky decision-making. The ventromedial prefrontal cortex (vmPFC) and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (dlPFC) are two distinct cortical areas that are involved in reward processing. […]

tDCS improves executive functions,

Link – Repeated transcranial direct current stimulation of dorsolateral-prefrontal cortex improves executive functions, cognitive reappraisal emotion regulation, and control over emotional processing in borderline personality disorder: A randomized, sham-controlled, parallel-group study. Abstract BACKGROUND: Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is primarily characterized by deficient emotion regulation. Impaired cognitive control over negative emotions is central to emotion dysregulation […]

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 […]
