tRNS in treating chronic tinnitus.

Link – The efficacy and safety of multiple sessions of multisite transcranial random noise stimulation in treating chronic tinnitus. Abstract INTRODUCTION: Random noise stimulation was reported as the more effective and safer type of electrical stimulation techniques in relieving tinnitus symptoms. The multisite protocol of transcranial random noise stimulation has shown additional favorable effects. OBJECTIVE: […]

Vision plasticity and restoration using non-invasive brain stimulation

Link – Vision modulation, plasticity and restoration using non-invasive brain stimulation – An IFCN-sponsored review. Abstract The visual system has one of the most complex structures of all sensory systems and is perhaps the most important sense for everyday life. Its functional organization was extensively studied for decades in animal and humans, for example by […]

tRNS on the semantic Stroop effect

Link – Potential impact of bifrontal transcranial random noise stimulation (tRNS) on the semantic Stroop effect and its resting-state EEG correlates. Abstract OBJECTIVE: The Stroop effect performance reflects cognitive resistance to interference. We aimed to investigate the effect of a single transcranial random noise stimulation session (tRNS) applied over the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) on […]

Hum Mov Sci. 2019 May 09;66:241-248 Authors: Albuquerque LL, Fischer KM, Pauls AL, Pantovic M, Guadagnoli MA, Riley ZA, Poston B Abstract Transcranial random noise stimulation (tRNS) is a brain stimulation technique […]

Suboptimal Engagement of High-Level Cortical Regions Predicts tRNS Gains in Sustained Attention.

Link – Suboptimal Engagement of High-Level Cortical Regions Predicts Random-Noise-Related Gains in Sustained Attention. Psychol Sci. 2019 Sep;30(9):1318-1332 Authors: Harty S, Cohen Kadosh R Abstract Interindividual variability in outcomes across individuals poses great challenges for the application of noninvasive brain stimulation in psychological research. Here, we examined how the effects of high-frequency transcranial random-noise stimulation […]

chronic tinnitus- tRNS modulates the distress network activity and oscillatory powers

Link – Multisite transcranial Random Noise Stimulation (tRNS) modulates the distress network activity and oscillatory powers in subjects with chronic tinnitus. J Clin Neurosci. 2019 Sep;67:178-184 Authors: Mohsen S, Mahmoudian S, Talebian S, Pourbakht A Abstract Tinnitus is a common disorder in which auditory and non-auditory areas are involved as a network. Therefore, the multisite […]
