Transcranial direct current brain stimulation decreases impulsivity in ADHD. Brain Stimul. 2018 Apr 23;: Authors: Allenby C, Falcone M, Bernardo L, Wileyto EP, Rostain A, Ramsay JR, Lerman C, Loughead J Abstract BACKGROUND: Impulsivity is a core deficit in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) of the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) has been shown to modulate cognitive control circuits and could enhance DLPFC activity, leading to improved impulse control in ADHD. OBJECTIVE: Hypothesis: We predicted 2.0 mA anodal stimulation (tDCS) versus sham stimulation applied over the left DLPFC would improve Conners Continuous Performance Task (CPT) scores.
