J Affect Disord. 2018 Feb 28;234:164-173 Authors: Csifcsák G, Boayue NM, Puonti O, Thielscher A, Mittner M Abstract BACKGROUND: Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) above the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (lDLPFC) has been widely used to improve symptoms of major depressive disorder (MDD). However, the effects of different stimulation protocols in the entire frontal lobe have not been investigated in a large sample including patient data. METHODS: We used 38 head models created from structural magnetic resonance imaging data of 19 healthy adults and 19 MDD ... read more

  • Modulation of inhibitory control by prefrontal anodal tDCS: A crossover double-blind sham-controlled fMRI study.
    Related ArticlesModulation of inhibitory control by prefrontal anodal tDCS: A crossover double-blind sham-controlled fMRI study. PLoS One. 2018;13(3):e0194936 Authors: Sallard E, Mouthon M, De Pretto M, Spierer L Abstract Prefrontal anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has been proposed as a potential approach to improve inhibitory control performance. The functional consequences of tDCS during inhibition tasks remain, however, largely unresolved. We addressed this question by analyzing functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) recorded while participants completed a Go/NoGo task after right-lateralized prefrontal anodal tDCS with a crossover, sham-controlled, double-blind experimental design. We replicated previous evidence for an absence of offline ... read more

Hum Mov Sci. 2018 Feb 28;: Authors: Broeder S, Heremans E, Pinto Pereira M, Nackaerts E, Meesen R, Verheyden G, Nieuwboer A Abstract Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) over the primary motor cortex (M1) can boost motor performance in Parkinson's disease (PD) when it is applied at rest. However, the potential supplementary therapeutic effect of the concurrent application of tDCS during the training of motor tasks is largely unknown. The present study examined the effects of tDCS on upper ... read more
