Cognitive Effects of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation in Healthy and Clinical Populations: An Overview.
Cognitive Effects of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation in Healthy and Clinical Populations: An Overview. J ECT. 2018 Aug 08;: Authors: Berryhill ME, Martin D Abstract Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a neuromodulatory approach that is affordable, safe, and well tolerated. This review article summarizes the research and clinically relevant findings from meta-analyses and studies investigating the cognitive effects of tDCS in healthy and clinical populations. We recapitulate findings from recent studies where cognitive performance paired with tDCS was compared with performance under placebo (sham stimulation) in single sessions and longitudinal designs where cognitive effects were evaluated following repeated sessions. ... read more
