J Neurosci. 2018 Jul 20;: Authors: Bachtiar V, Johnstone A, Berrington A, Lemke C, Johansen-Berg H, Emir U, Stagg C Abstract Learning a novel motor skill is dependent both on regional changes within the primary motor cortex (M1) contralateral to the active hand, and also on modulation between and within anatomically-distant but functionally-connected brain regions. Inter-regional changes are particularly important in functional recovery after stroke, where critical plastic changes underpinning behavioural improvements are observed in both ipsilesional and contralesional M1s.

  • Effect of transcranial direct current stimulation associated with hypocaloric diet on weight loss and metabolic profile in overweight or obesity: study protocol for a double-blind, randomized controlled clinical trial.
    Related ArticlesEffect of transcranial direct current stimulation associated with hypocaloric diet on weight loss and metabolic profile in overweight or obesity: study protocol for a double-blind, randomized controlled clinical trial. Trials. 2018 Jul 16;19(1):386 Authors: Araujo C, Fitz RC, Nogara DA, Schestatsky P, Gerchman F Abstract BACKGROUND: Dietary interventions have limited success in promoting sustainable weight loss; new treatments allowing better compliance with hypocaloric diets should be developed. The aim of this trial is to describe the effects of a protocol combining repetitive active transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) with a hypocaloric diet on weight loss and food ... read more

  • Improved conceptual generation and selection with transcranial direct current stimulation in older adults.
    Related ArticlesImproved conceptual generation and selection with transcranial direct current stimulation in older adults. J Clin Exp Neuropsychol. 2018 Jul 17;:1-15 Authors: Madden DL, Sale MV, Robinson GA Abstract INTRODUCTION: Normal aging is associated with deficits in various aspects of spoken language production, including idea generation and selection, and involves activity in frontal brain areas including left inferior frontal cortex (LIFG). These conceptual preparation processes, largely involving executive control, precede formulation and articulation stages and are critical for language production. Noninvasive brain stimulation (e.g., transcranial direct current stimulation, tDCS) has proven beneficial for age-related fluency and naming deficits, but this ... read more

Brain Stimul. 2018 Jul 14;: Authors: Yosephi MH, Ehsani F, Zoghi M, Jaberzadeh S Abstract BACKGROUND: Postural control impairment is a key target for rehabilitation of older adults with high fall risk. OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (a-tDCS) over primary motor cortex (M1) or cerebellum can enhance the positive effects of postural training on balance and postural stability in older adults with high fall risk. METHOD: In ... read more

  • Compromised tDCS-induced facilitation of motor consolidation in patients with multiple sclerosis.
    Related ArticlesCompromised tDCS-induced facilitation of motor consolidation in patients with multiple sclerosis. J Neurol. 2018 Aug 06;: Authors: Rumpf JJ, Dietrich S, Stoppe M, Fricke C, Weise D, Then Bergh F, Classen J Abstract OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether consolidation after motor learning can be facilitated by offline (post-training) transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). METHODS: In this cross-sectional double-blind interventional study, effects of tDCS on motor consolidation were examined in 14 patients with relapsing remitting MS [median Expanded Disability Status Scale score 2.0 (range 1-4)] and 14 age- and sex-matched healthy controls. tDCS with ... read more
