  • External trigeminal nerve stimulation for drug resistant epilepsy: a randomized controlled trial
    External trigeminal nerve stimulation (ETNS) is an emergent, non-invasive neurostimulation therapy delivered bilaterally with adhesive skin electrodes. In previous studies, ETNS was associated to a decrease in seizure frequency in patients with focal drug-resistant epilepsy (DRE). ... read more

  • Induction of long-term potentiation-like plasticity in the primary motor cortex with repeated anodal transcranial direct current stimulation – Better effects with intensified protocols?
    A single session of anodal tDCS induces LTP-like plasticity which lasts for about 1 h, while repetition of stimulation within a time interval of 30 min results in late-phase effects lasting for at least 24 h with standard stimulation protocols. ... read more

  • Deep Brain Stimulation of Hypothalamus for Narcolepsy-Cataplexy in Mice
    Narcolepsy type 1 (NT1, narcolepsy with cataplexy) is a disabling neurological disorder caused by loss of excitatory orexin neurons from the hypothalamus and is characterized by decreased motivation, sleep-wake fragmentation, intrusion of rapid-eye-movement sleep (REMS) during wake, and abrupt loss of muscle tone, called cataplexy, in response to sudden emotions. ... read more

  • Reply to letter to the editor
    We appreciate the pertinent comments by Shah and colleagues [1] on our paper pertaining to the use of tDCS in acute stroke patients [2]. We hope that this letter will help bring clarification to our paper. ... read more

  • Treating the mental health effects of COVID-19: The need for at-home neurotherapeutics is now
    COVID-19 is a global pandemic that is expected to infect millions and kill up to hundreds of thousands of people, with a troubling rise in cases each day [1]. It is first and foremost a deadly virus. However, what many have not yet considered are the secondary mental health effects that will likely occur the ongoing efforts to reduce the impact of COVID-19. Here we discuss how at-home neurotherapeutics, including telehealth and self-administered brain stimulation, could help to curtail some of the possible mental health ripple effects caused by COVID-19. ... read more

  • Reliable use of silver chloride HD-tDCS electrodes
    In a recent letter to the editor, Langenbach and colleagues [1] cited concerns about the repeated use of Ag/AgCl electrodes in 4x1 High Definition transcranial direct current stimulation (HD-tDCS). Briefly, the authors reported increased impedance (with sudden, occasional cessation of stimulation) and visual evidence of oxidation (blackening of the electrode surface) after about 8 sessions in which the same electrode was used as the anode (2mA) and four other “ring” electrodes served as cathodes for up to 20 minutes per session. ... read more

  • Brain functional effects of electroconvulsive therapy during emotional processing in major depressive disorder
    In treatment-resistant major depressive disorder (MDD), electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is a treatment with high efficacy. While knowledge regarding changes in brain structure following ECT is growing, the effects of ECT on brain function during emotional processing are largely unknown. ... read more

  • Integrating tDCS into routine inpatient rehabilitation practice to boost post-stroke recovery
    Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), a non-invasive brain modulation tool, has gained popularity due to the portability, ease-of-use, and low cost. A majority of stroke recovery studies using tDCS have been focused on the chronic stage of recovery, as this time frame is relatively easy to conduct clinical trials and measure efficacy. However, studies during the chronic stage likely miss a window of opportunity where dynamic brain plasticity is occurring, the acute and subacute stages after stroke. ... read more

  • Activation of NMDA receptor ion channels by deep brain stimulation in the pig visualised with [18F]GE-179 PET
    No PET radioligand has yet demonstrated the capacity to map glutamate N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor ion channel (NMDAR-IC) function. [18F]GE-179 binds to the phencyclidine (PCP) site in open NMDAR-ICs and potentially provides a use-dependent PET biomarker of these ion channels. ... read more

  • Effects of high-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation over the contralesional motor cortex on motor recovery in severe hemiplegic stroke: A randomized clinical trial
    The contralesional hemisphere compensation may play a critical role in the recovery of stroke when there is extensive damage to one hemisphere. There is little research on the treatment of hemiplegia by high-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) delivered to the contralesional cortex. ... read more
