A systematic review on the effects of non-invasive neuromodulation on executive and other cognitive functions in addictive disorders
In order to improve the current treatment of addictive disorders, noninvasive neuromodulation over the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC), a brain area crucially involved in executive functioning (EF), has gained attention. EF is impaired in addictive disorders, hence non-invasive stimulation of the DLPFC may lead to changes in EF and thereby improved treatment outcomes. An overview of the effects of non-invasive neuromodulation on EF in addictive disorders will be provided in this review. The current review is conducted and reported in accordance with the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews and Meta-Analyses for Protocols 2015 (PRISMA-P 2015) guidelines. ... read more
