  • What ICDS devices are folks using?
    I am currently using Apex ICDS brand device I got on Amazon. After reading some of these posts I am concerned about the safety of the device. Also it seems difficult to buy new sponges and replacement parts for my device. Any other tips for beginning users? Should I change up my montage from time to time? I am mostly using cognitive enhancement/complex problem solving. Is there a good book or website out there that can provide more info?

  • Halo Sport 2: what intensity setting do you use?
    I recently got a Halo Sport 2. The settings for stimulation go from 1-10. The instructions say to go with what's comfortable while still being able to feel it. I found myself going down to 3. It doesn't hurt per se, but it's not really comfortable going higher than that. What level do most of you all set it at? submitted by /u/lurkuplurkdown [link] [comments] ... read more

  • Using 2 different montages in one day?
    Question: have you used two different montages, looking for different results, in parallel (e.g., one in the AM, one in PM)? Pros/cons? I've been using a BrainDriver with a depression/anxiety montage for about 3 weeks (weekdays AM, weekends off) and seem to be getting positive results. But since I'm also a musician learning multiple new-to-me instruments I just took advantage of the Halo Sport 2 sale for $275. [Yes, I know I could have just targeted C3/C4 with the BrainDriver, but dealing with the wires while trying to play some instruments didn't work well.] I don't feel ready ... read more

  • average time in which you saw results
    been about a week of use, and I haven't noticed any results for my depression/anxiety. I figure it's too early to tell but I just want to ask- I saw some posts that said relief was almost immediate, and it would be hard to stomach spending a lot of money (when I really don't have it in the first place) on something else that doesn't work for my mental health. thanks submitted by /u/jessieminden [link] [comments] ... read more

  • tDCS experiences?
    Hi all! I'm a journalist with a science background researching a piece about tDCS. I've read many of the published studies, but now I'm really interested in home users and all of the data that you folks are generating! Is there somewhere that people upload their data (regarding positive or negative effects)? Has anyone associated with an academic institution expressed an interest in analyzing data from home users? Would this be something that anyone in the community would be interested in? Thanks so much everyone! submitted by /u/Neuro_Hannah [link] [comments] ... read more

  • TDCS mechanism of action seems to be BDNF upregulation, Calcium, Niacin, vitamin K2? what other supplements can syngergise with it’s effects.
    Have been doing some reading. TDCS appears to upregulate the expression of BDNF. I read somewhere Niacin is a necessary precursor for the synthesis of that particular protein. Calcium influx seems to upregulate BDNF in the brain. This happens during (HIIT) high intensity interval training as well as during a TDCS session. So, at this stage I'm thinking vitamin K2, Calcium and Niacin (possibly Nictoinamide riboside) as a way to ensure maximum effect and no long term deficits in precursors or expression. Anyone with a better grasp of the science have any better ideas? submitted ... read more

  • Just ordered an apex- don’t know what I’m doing
    Treatment resistant depression over here for years. I’ve tried so many meds and types of therapy... I’m going to try ketamine therapy but I wanted to give this a try first. To be honest I’m at my wits end and I’ll try anything that might help. Any suggestions for a novice? Thanks y’all! submitted by /u/jessieminden [link] [comments] ... read more

  • Any new tACS devices?
    A cs, not D cs. I was foolish and bought the foc.us one before but got ripped off. The studies on tACS still looked interesting before (push your attention to focus, get results). I'm still interested in tACS. And I still have the extra pads and cables I got from Caputron in addition to the foc.us..... Are there any new, affordable tACS out on the market? (Yes, Caputron has the foc.us ones, but if the foc.us product is crap I'm still not buying from Caputron even if they have a better guarantee. A turd is still a ... read more
