  • Some tDCS Questions
    Hey guys, recently discovered tDCS, its seems cool but I have a few questions i'd like to ask before I think about getting into it. Are there any devices that you can wear with it looking like regular piece of clothing or have it somehow concealed, if so can you make suggestions? Also, do you guys wear it in public or in the workplace? Is this safe and have you noticed any negative effects of tDCS? Will this help with productivity? Is this really a solution to a lot of focus issues? submitted by ... read more

  • Flip Polarity To F3+ F4- for improved mood
    Before getting into the details most folks know the typical montage for depression is F4+ FP2-. https://totaltdcs.com/electrode-montages/depression-and-anxiety Another typical montage is F3- F4+ for reduced cravings or dependency on drugs or alcohol. https://totaltdcs.com/electrode-montages/cravings-and-addictions/ I was reading and older Reddit post where someone mention using F3+ F4- and had great results on treating depression. I went back to an article on a cerebellum montage I have been using and they referenced this flipped polarity montage. Here is a link to that study using F3+ F4- "In experiment 1 and 2 the anode was ... read more

  • Jewfro/italian-fro… how do you deal with extremely thick and curly hair when securing placements??
    I got crazy thick italian-jewfro going on. Like REALLY thick and VERY curly hair. I'm actively considering going across town for cornrows to like make the placement easier to figure out. Anyone have tips? Like my hair won't lay flat until I apply AT LEAST 3 James Franco's worth of hair grease or pomade to make it part and stay parted. Any tips? submitted by /u/PoopDoopTrixie [link] [comments] ... read more

  • Literally 30 minutes of use has cleared my Major Depression, it’s disappeared!
    Is this going to last? I know it’s not placebo because I can actually think again. My mind is moving fast again. I’ve been depressed all my life. Idk if it just kicked in the medication I’m on or it’s the device. I have been on my medication for a month with NO benefit until today. submitted by /u/Canlifebealtered [link] [comments] ... read more

  • Research on long-term or permanent effects?
    I'm trying to find research on yet long term or permanent effects of tDCS or tACS. Some people here say it will cure your depression after so long. I'd like to see some data. All the research I've read about it just focusses on the effects during or immediately after a session. It's not just the effects on depression I want to read about, but on any mental process. Thanks. submitted by /u/Hammau [link] [comments] ... read more

  • Meditation effects from tDCS (been reading Eckhart Tolle again)
    Hi, i've been seriously looking into tDCS lately and I'm wondering if this can help one become more 'present.' I'm sure the answer is yes but I wanted to hear from you guys. I you're not familiar with Tolle's work, his main philosophy is that the mind often is this incessant chatter-box, which stresses us out, and the way around this is to live in the present moment without giving too much attention to past and future (worrying, regretting, etc.) I know that when I practiced his meditation I felt this nice, deep sense of peace, but the ... read more

  • Remember to change your sponges frequently
    To keep this short, I've noticed a return of the initial effects of tdcs by making sure I change the sponges every two weeks. Kind of expensive, but effects stay more consistent. Also, anyone have any idea if I can buy/make electrode wires off the shelf (ie Home depot)? Here are the ones I'm using. ​ https://www.trans-cranial.com/product/tdcs-stimulator-to-electrode-lead-wire-5x/ https://www.trans-cranial.com/product/split-wires/ submitted by /u/PrizeDouble [link] [comments] ... read more

  • Bizarre symptom after tDCS
    Hi everybody, I wanted to share my experience with tDCS. A couple months ago I bought a device in hopes it would help with my chronic pain. I did a 10-minute session at low power using supraorbital+motor cortex montage. About an hour later I had a rather large, painful bump on the roof of my mouth that made it painful to swallow or eat. There was no lesion as far as I could tell, just a painful protrusion. It lasted about a day before subsiding. I know this probably sounds bizarre, but there were no other atypical factors ... read more

  • Just has extraordinary experience with TMS and curious about tDCS.
    I am 54 and left handed. I have been severely depressed and suicidal since kindergarten at least. Several months ago, I started dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and for the first time, I found a benefit from therapy. I learned about transcrainial magnetic stimulation, and after a lot of research, I concluded that it was safe might help or might do nothing. Insurance took a while, and I had my first treatment on January 8. From my research, I knew that any benefit would start to appear after about 3 weeks. My experience was very different. After the ... read more
