A Clinical Trial with Combined Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation and Attentional Bias Modification in Alcohol Dependent Patients. Alcohol Clin Exp Res. 2018 Jul 19;: Authors: den Uyl TE, Gladwin TE, Lindenmeyer J, Wiers RW Abstract BACKGROUND: Modifying attentional processes with attentional bias modification (ABM) might be a relevant add-on to treatment in addiction. This study investigated whether influencing cortical plasticity with transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) could increase training effects. TDCS could also help alcohol-dependent patients to overcome craving and reduce relapse, independent of training. These approaches were combined to investigate effects in the treatment of alcoholism. METHODS: Ninety-eight patients ... read more
