  • Darpa Montage for dual n-back? Weird first time effects.
    I have been doing dual n-back tests for awhile with the hopes of increasing my working memory. After a couple months I can do 4-back consistently and occasionally 5-back. I tried my first tdcs session today from the right temple to the left shoulder. My performance dropped considerably, I had a hard time remembering things and also would zone out, my mind became completely blank. Is this a normal (first?) experience? From reading this article [https://www.lastwordonnothing.com/2012/02/09/better-living-through-electrochemistry/] I was under the impression that the Darpa montage was supposed to increase performance and learning while doing. Am I mistaken? Maybe ... read more

  • Will tDCS work for lefties or make it worse?
    I plan on trying tDCS for depression/anxiety but have read that left handed people don’t always respond well since we have less lateralization in the brain. Has anyone had successful results as a lefty? And how risky would it be for me to try it? I am scared I will make my depression worse and I am not sure I can handle that submitted by /u/BW286 [link] [comments] ... read more

  • CPTSD, anxiety, cognitive issues, low energy, low sleep quality, weak memory – what should I try?
    Hello, I have chronic PTSD that affects me for quite a while, I'm stressed, have low energy during the day, low sleep quality (wakes up after 5-6 hours, feeling tired) and my memory feels as if I'm developing Alzheimer (that's something I tell myself sometimes). I'm 30yo and in the past 8 years I've worked through many of my emotional issues, thinking this will improve my cognitive abilities and overall feelings. A few months ago, I started Neurofeedback training, with some noticeable progress. I've seen improvement in some aspect, but for the first time in my life I ... read more

  • Where is F3 *exactly*? I can find it “vertically” but not so sure I get the right spot. Where is it in relation to the hairline?

  • First time user (Brain Stimulator 3), a couple quick questions.
    I attempted the FP2 montage initially. I experienced all of the characteristic effects. I have a lamp turned on to my left, as I was gradually increasing the voltage to 2 mA, the light would become brighter for an instant and then return to normal. Experienced a metallic taste and tingling sensation on my tongue. A very mild burning where the electrodes were placed. Since these seemed to be very common experiences, I figured that I had installed everything correctly. After a couple minutes I felt the burning sensation increase in intensity so I got worried that I ... read more

  • DARPA montage vs +F3 -FP2 for depression and anxiety. Looking for anecdotal experience, not studies
    I know there are a lot of studies out there, and have in fact read many of them, even if I can count with one hand the ones I understand. However, as crazy as it sounds, I'm more interested in anecdotal experience this time. I know the ApeX guy used the DARPA montage for his depression and anxiety, and it seems to have worked well for him. +F3 -FP2 is probably the most famous one for depression and anxiety.

  • Tinnitus after/from tDCS?
    I was applying tDCS (F3, FP2) for quite a few weeks at 2mA every other day or so to combat depression quite successfully. I'd normally do it for 45 mins - a bit longer every now and then. Yesterday it went a bit longer than usual and suddenly it felt like I've got this very subtle/quiet high-pitched white noise in the background (like from those old TVs). It's the morning after and the noise is still there - it's most evident when it's quiet. I had night sweats while sleeping. All research says it's tinnitus 🙁 I'm only ... read more

  • Buyers beware: the brain driver
    I decided to take my step into TDCS and purchased a Brain Driver directly from the website. I did this mainly because it had a 60 day no questions asked return policy and it was a few dollars cheaper than Anazon. I started to try it out and really didn’t feel anything after a couple of weeks. I emailed support for an RMA and waited. I didn’t hear back so I sent another email and another. I eventually emailed every email address I could find on the site and still nothing. I messaged them on Twitter, also nothing. ... read more
