Pre-frontal tDCS improves sustained attention and promotes artificial grammar learning in aphasia: An open-label study
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a potentially ground-breaking form of aphasia treatment, but questions remain related to stimulation targets and underlying cognitive benefits of tDCS. TDCS may be especially useful for increasing cost-effectiveness of aphasia therapy due to its relatively low cost and evidence that it may enhance certain types of therapy outcomes [1,2]. Many studies investigating tDCS in aphasia have used fMRI to locate active regions surrounding participants’ lesions [2,3] then targeted for tDCS stimulation. ... read more
