Impact of concurrent task performance on transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS)-induced changes in cortical physiology and working memory

Impact of concurrent task performance on transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS)-induced changes in cortical physiology and working memory
Background: tDCS provides a means of non-invasively inducing plasticity-related changes in neural circuits in vivo and is currently experiencing increasing use as a potential tool for modulating a number of cognitive processes. As tDCS exerts its effects via sub-threshold alterations in ongoing neural activity, outcomes are likely to be contingent on an individual’s brain state at the time of stimulation. Here we aimed to assess the neurophysiological and behavioural impact of applying stimulation at rest versus during active engagement in a cognitive task. ... read more
