THE PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF TRANSCRANIAL ELECTRICAL STIMULATION DO NOT APPLY TO PARAMETERS COMMONLY USED IN STUDIES OF COGNITIVE NEUROMODULATION. Neuropsychologia. 2018 Apr 06;: Authors: Parkin BL, Bhandari M, Glen JC, Walsh V Abstract Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and transcranial random noise stimulation (tRNS) have been claimed to produce many remarkable enhancements in perception, cognition, learning and numerous clinical conditions. The physiological basis of the claims for tDCS rests on the finding that 1mA of unilateral anodal stimulation increases cortical excitation and 1mA of cathodal produces inhibition. Here we show that these classic excitatory and inhibitory effects do not hold ... read more
