  • Evaluation of the efficacy of transcranial direct current stimulation in the treatment of cognitive symptomatology in the early stages of psychosis: study protocol for a double-blind randomized controlled trial.
    Related ArticlesEvaluation of the efficacy of transcranial direct current stimulation in the treatment of cognitive symptomatology in the early stages of psychosis: study protocol for a double-blind randomized controlled trial. Trials. 2019 Apr 05;20(1):199 Authors: Rabanea-Souza T, Cirigola SMC, Noto C, Gomes JS, Azevedo CC, Gadelha A, Cordeiro Q, Dias ÁM, Lacerda ALT Abstract BACKGROUND: Cognitive deficits are core symptoms of schizophrenia that occur from the early stages of the disorder. There is reliable evidence that cognitive deficits are associated with outcomes in schizophrenia; thus, early treatment could be particularly important.

  • Plasticity of the Right-Lateralized Cognitive Reserve Network in Ageing.
    Related ArticlesPlasticity of the Right-Lateralized Cognitive Reserve Network in Ageing. Cereb Cortex. 2018 05 01;28(5):1749-1759 Authors: Brosnan MB, Demaria G, Petersen A, Dockree PM, Robertson IH, Wiegand I Abstract Cognitive reserve (CR) is the phenomenon where older adults with more cognitively stimulating environments show less age-related cognitive decline. The right-lateralized fronto-parietal network has been proposed to significantly contribute to CR and visual attention in ageing. In this study we tested whether plasticity of this network may be harnessed in ageing.We assessed CR and parameters of visual attention capacity in older adults. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) was employed to ... read more

  • Preliminary findings of four-week, task-based anodal prefrontal cortex transcranial direct current stimulation transferring to other cognitive improvements in schizophrenia.
    Preliminary findings of four-week, task-based anodal prefrontal cortex transcranial direct current stimulation transferring to other cognitive improvements in schizophrenia. Psychiatry Res. 2019 Jul 17;280:112487 Authors: Weickert TW, Salimuddin H, Lenroot RK, Bruggemann J, Loo C, Vercammen A, Kindler J, Weickert CS Abstract Most transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) trials of schizophrenia administer few sessions and do not assess transfer effects to other cognitive domains. In a randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled, parallel groups trial, we determined the extent to which 4-weeks of 2 mA tDCS at 20 min/day totalling 20 tDCS sessions administered during a spatial working memory test, with anodal right dorsolateral prefrontal ... read more

  • Cathodal stimulating the left DLPFC changes risk disposition toward common risky behaviors in daily-life.
    Related ArticlesCathodal stimulating the left DLPFC changes risk disposition toward common risky behaviors in daily-life. Neurosci Lett. 2019 Jul 23;709:134400 Authors: Wen Y, Turel O, Peng Y, Lv C, He Q Abstract Many daily activities require the weighting of risks and gains, and adjusting decisions based on this information. The present study investigates the role of left DLPFC in such normal-life, routine, but risky decisions. We expected that down-regulating the left DLPFC will reduce emphasis on gains such that less-riskier decisions, as captured with attitude and behavioral intention measures, are made. In study 1 (n = 56), tDCS naïve participants were ... read more

This study was designed to investigate acute and prolonged exercise-induced cardio- and neurophysiological responses in ... read more

  • The Insula: A Brain Stimulation Target for the Treatment of Addiction.
    Related ArticlesThe Insula: A Brain Stimulation Target for the Treatment of Addiction. Front Pharmacol. 2019;10:720 Authors: Ibrahim C, Rubin-Kahana DS, Pushparaj A, Musiol M, Blumberger DM, Daskalakis ZJ, Zangen A, Le Foll B Abstract Substance use disorders (SUDs) are a growing public health concern with only a limited number of approved treatments. However, even approved treatments are subject to limited efficacy with high long-term relapse rates. Current treatment approaches are typically a combination of pharmacotherapies and behavioral counselling. Growing evidence and technological advances suggest the potential of brain stimulation techniques for the treatment of SUDs. There are three ... read more

  • 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

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
