Addict Biol. 2017 Sep;22(5):1267-1278 Authors: Pedron S, Beverley J, Haffen E, Andrieu P, Steiner H, Van Waes V Abstract Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a non-invasive method to modulate cortical excitability. This technique is a promising emerging tool to treat several neuropathologies, including addiction. We have previously shown in mice that repeated tDCS normalizes pathological behaviors associated with chronic nicotine exposure. Here, we evaluated, in adult female mice, the impact of tDCS on cocaine-induced behavior and gene regulation in corticostriatal ... read more
