Hey guys, I’m a 4th year neuro major and looking to do a home project for fun. I want to build a minor tACS device capable of 250microamps peak to peak. I found the focus tDCS battery that you can convert to tACS but the price range is pretty steep. Any easy/cheap alternatives?
I used the most common depression montage. (F3 / FP2). I remember this being somewhat stress relieving and calming in the past. I had not used the unit in about 5 months or so. This time it actually created anxiety (butterflies in stomach feeling). red electrode (anode?) on F3 (left), and black on FP2 (right).
when i reversed it the anxiety went away. i checked the connections multiple times. I keep thinking maybe i’m stupid and got it wrong or something…
I recently bought the Brain Stimulator. I received the basic package plus two 3×3 Amrex Sponge electrodes. I figured it would be cheaper to just buy my own headband, and skip on the deluxe package. What I did not realize was that the basic package does not come with adapters for the sponges, only alligator clip adapters.
Is there any other source, besides theBrainStimulator.net, for Amrex banana plug adapters such as these?
I would like to know whether there are any alternatives to these adapters (I tried using the set with the stock plugs inserted into each sponge; the results were neglible).
just a warning I ordered one of their devices after 35 days of no results for the $599 price I sent it back for the 60 day guarantee $ back well they do say please allow 4 to 6 weeks for your refund check….hahaha I think they may just be getting interest on your $ not only did 6 weeks pass and they wouldn’t respond to any of my emails so i had to call the BBB to deal with them so 8 emails later a guy calls to say my check is in the mail on a friday so now i just get an email today 3 days later saying my check has been sent fedex they are liars and will deceive you in every way they can before sending back the $$$….BEWARE
I just received my PriorMind TDCS unit (great unit) 15 minutes of the DARPA montage, stimulating F10 and the black unit on my left bicep.
I definitely felt altered in a way that I’m not sure I can describe, I stopped after 15 minutes because my cat was acting weird and giving me strange looks and eventually climbed on the unit causing it become partially unplugged creating strobes of flashing light (I understand the flashes are normal now).
I took a quick drive to the store after, and when I got on the road I started to second guess myself if I should be driving, I felt slightly out of control and at the store I had a hard time communicating with the cashier, and stumbled a few times being unable to remember something that I thought I needed to pickup.
So basically I became slightly retarded for an hour, and my cat seems very worried about me. I’m not sure if I’ll proceed with this montage again. I do think there is something to this montage, my inner dialogue flows very naturally but trying to communicate or operate machine is more challenged.
I’m not sure why my cat was acting so weird, seriously he’s never acted like this before, and it actually kind of spooked me out a little bit.
