Front Neurosci. 2018;12:319 Authors: Varoli E, Pisoni A, Mattavelli GC, Vergallito A, Gallucci A, Mauro LD, Rosanova M, Bolognini N, Vallar G, Romero Lauro LJ Abstract Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is increasingly used in both research and therapeutic settings, but its precise mechanisms remain largely unknown. At a neuronal level, tDCS modulates cortical excitability by shifting the resting membrane potential in a polarity-dependent way: anodal stimulation increases the spontaneous firing rate, while cathodal decreases it. However, the neurophysiological underpinnings of ... read more
