Pre-treatment attentional processing speed and antidepressant response to transcranial direct current stimulation: Results from an international randomized controlled trial. Brain Stimul. 2018 Aug 23;: Authors: Martin DM, McClintock SM, Aaronson ST, Alonzo A, Husain MM, Lisanby SH, McDonald WM, Mohan A, Nikolin S, O'Reardon J, Weickert CS, Loo CK Abstract BACKGROUND: Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has promising antidepressant effects, however, clinical trials have shown variable efficacy. Pre-treatment neurocognitive functioning has previously been identified as an inter-individual predictor of tDCS antidepressant efficacy. OBJECTIVE: In this international multicentre, sham-controlled study, we investigated this relationship while also assessing the influence of clinical ... read more
