Front Psychol. 2018;9:2351 Authors: Borragán G, Gilson M, Guerrero-Mosquera C, Di Ricci E, Slama H, Peigneux P Abstract Sustained cognitive demands may result in cognitive fatigue (CF), eventually leading to decreased behavioral performance and compromised brain resources. In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) would counteract the behavioral and neurophysiological effects of CF. Twenty young healthy participants were tested in a within-subject counterbalanced order across two different days. Anodal tDCS (real vs. ... read more
