  • Basic and functional effects of transcranial Electrical Stimulation (tES)-An introduction.
    Related ArticlesBasic and functional effects of transcranial Electrical Stimulation (tES)-An introduction. Neurosci Biobehav Rev. 2018 02;85:81-92 Authors: Yavari F, Jamil A, Mosayebi Samani M, Vidor LP, Nitsche MA Abstract Non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) has been gaining increased popularity in human neuroscience research during the last years. Among the emerging NIBS tools is transcranial electrical stimulation (tES), whose main modalities are transcranial direct, and alternating current stimulation (tDCS, tACS). In tES, a small current (usually less than 3mA) is delivered through the scalp. Depending on its shape, density, and duration, the applied current induces acute or long-lasting effects on excitability ... read more

  • Cognitive effects of non-surgical brain stimulation for major depressive disorder: protocol for a systematic review and meta-analysis.
    Related ArticlesCognitive effects of non-surgical brain stimulation for major depressive disorder: protocol for a systematic review and meta-analysis. BMJ Open. 2019 Feb 19;9(2):e023796 Authors: Kiebs M, Hurlemann R, Mutz J Abstract INTRODUCTION: Non-surgical brain stimulation techniques may be considered as alternative or add-on treatments for patients with major depressive disorder who failed to respond to pharmacological interventions. Electroconvulsive therapy has been shown to be highly effective in reducing depressive symptoms but stakeholders remain concerned about adverse cognitive effects. Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation and transcranial direct current stimulation may be associated with more benign adverse effect profiles and may indeed ... read more

  • Non-invasive Brain Stimulation for the Rehabilitation of Children and Adolescents With Neurodevelopmental Disorders: A Systematic Review.
    Related ArticlesNon-invasive Brain Stimulation for the Rehabilitation of Children and Adolescents With Neurodevelopmental Disorders: A Systematic Review. Front Psychol. 2019;10:135 Authors: Finisguerra A, Borgatti R, Urgesi C Abstract In the last years, there has been a growing interest in the application of different non-invasive brain stimulation techniques to induce neuroplasticity and to modulate cognition and behavior in adults. Very recently, different attempts have been made to induce functional plastic changes also in pediatric populations. Importantly, not only sensorimotor processing, but also higher-level functions have been addressed, with the aim to boost rehabilitation in different neurodevelopmental disorders. However, efficacy ... read more

  • Frequency-dependent tACS modulation of BOLD signal during rhythmic visual stimulation.
    Related ArticlesFrequency-dependent tACS modulation of BOLD signal during rhythmic visual stimulation. Hum Brain Mapp. 2018 05;39(5):2111-2120 Authors: Chai Y, Sheng J, Bandettini PA, Gao JH Abstract Transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) has emerged as a promising tool for modulating cortical oscillations. In previous electroencephalogram (EEG) studies, tACS has been found to modulate brain oscillatory activity in a frequency-specific manner. However, the spatial distribution and hemodynamic response for this modulation remains poorly understood. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has the advantage of measuring neuronal activity in regions not only below the tACS electrodes but also across the whole brain ... read more
