tDCS reduces collinear lateral inhibition in normal peripheral vision.

Link – Anodal transcranial direct current stimulation reduces collinear lateral inhibition in normal peripheral vision. Abstract Collinear flanking stimuli can reduce the detectability of a Gabor target presented in peripheral vision. This phenomenon is called collinear lateral inhibition and it may contribute to crowding in peripheral vision. Perceptual learning can reduce collinear lateral inhibition in […]

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 […]

tES optimizes the balance of visual attention across space.

Link – Transcranial electric stimulation optimizes the balance of visual attention across space. Clin Neurophysiol. 2020 Jan 31;131(4):912-920 Authors: Andres M, Masson N, Larigaldie N, Bonato M, Vandermeeren Y, Dormal V Abstract OBJECTIVE: Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) provides a way to modulate spatial attention by enhancing the ratio of neural activity between the left […]
