The Effect of Alpha tACS on Visual Perception.

tACS sinewave

Link – The Effect of Alpha tACS on the Temporal Resolution of Visual Perception. Abstract We experience the world around us as a smooth and continuous flow. However, there is growing evidence that the stream of sensory inputs is not elaborated in an analog way but is instead organized in discrete or quasi-discrete temporal processing […]

Electrical stimulation of alpha oscillations stabilizes performance on visual attention tasks.

Link – Electrical stimulation of alpha oscillations stabilizes performance on visual attention tasks. J Exp Psychol Gen. 2019 Feb;148(2):203-220 Authors: Clayton MS, Yeung N, Cohen Kadosh R Abstract Neural oscillations in the alpha band (7-13 Hz) have long been associated with reductions in attention. However, recent studies have suggested a more nuanced perspective in which […]

Targeting alpha-band oscillations with tACS

Link – Targeting alpha-band oscillations in a cortical model with amplitude-modulated high-frequency transcranial electric stimulation. Neuroimage. 2018 06;173:3-12 Authors: Negahbani E, Kasten FH, Herrmann CS, Fröhlich F Abstract Non-invasive brain stimulation to target specific network activity patterns, e.g. transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS), has become an essential tool to understand the causal role of neuronal […]
