Curr Neurol Neurosci Rep. 2018 Apr 19;18(6):30 Authors: Meisenhelter S, Jobst BC Abstract PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Memory is one of the top concerns of epilepsy patients, but there are no known treatments to directly alleviate the memory deficits associated with epilepsy. Neurostimulation may provide new therapeutic tools to enhance memory in epilepsy patients. Here, we critically review recent investigations of memory enhancement using transcranial electrical stimulation (tES), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), vagus nerve stimulation (VNS), chronic intracranial stimulation, and acute intracranial stimulation. RECENT FINDINGS: Existing literature suggests that transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) ... read more
