  • Dose-Dependent Effects of Closed-Loop tACS Delivered During Slow-Wave Oscillations on Memory Consolidation.
    Related ArticlesDose-Dependent Effects of Closed-Loop tACS Delivered During Slow-Wave Oscillations on Memory Consolidation. Front Neurosci. 2018;12:867 Authors: Jones AP, Choe J, Bryant NB, Robinson CSH, Ketz NA, Skorheim SW, Combs A, Lamphere ML, Robert B, Gill HA, Heinrich MD, Howard MD, Clark VP, Pilly PK Abstract Sleep is critically important to consolidate information learned throughout the day. Slow-wave sleep (SWS) serves to consolidate declarative memories, a process previously modulated with open-loop non-invasive electrical stimulation, though not always effectively. These failures to replicate could be explained by the fact that stimulation has only been performed in open-loop, as opposed ... read more

  • Optimal Combination of Anodal Transcranial Direct Current Stimulations and Motor Imagery Interventions.
    Related ArticlesOptimal Combination of Anodal Transcranial Direct Current Stimulations and Motor Imagery Interventions. Neural Plast. 2018;2018:5351627 Authors: Saruco E, Di Rienzo F, Nunez-Nagy S, Rubio-Gonzalez MA, Debarnot U, Collet C, Guillot A, Saimpont A Abstract Motor imagery contributes to enhance the (re)learning of motor skills through remapping of cortical networks. Combining motor imagery with anodal transcranial direct-current stimulation (a-tDCS) over the primary motor cortex has further been shown to promote its beneficial effects on postural control. Whether motor imagery should be performed concomitantly to a-tDCS (over depolarized membrane) or consecutively (over changing neurotransmitters activity) remains to be elucidated. ... read more

  • Placebo Intervention Enhances Reward Learning in Healthy Individuals.
    Related ArticlesPlacebo Intervention Enhances Reward Learning in Healthy Individuals. Sci Rep. 2017 01 23;7:41028 Authors: Turi Z, Mittner M, Paulus W, Antal A Abstract According to the placebo-reward hypothesis, placebo is a reward-anticipation process that increases midbrain dopamine (DA) levels. Reward-based learning processes, such as reinforcement learning, involves a large part of the DA-ergic network that is also activated by the placebo intervention. Given the neurochemical overlap between placebo and reward learning, we investigated whether verbal instructions in conjunction with a placebo intervention are capable of enhancing reward learning in healthy individuals by using a monetary reward-based reinforcement-learning ... read more

  • Altered reward system reactivity for personalized circumscribed interests in autism.
    Related ArticlesAltered reward system reactivity for personalized circumscribed interests in autism. Mol Autism. 2018;9:9 Authors: Kohls G, Antezana L, Mosner MG, Schultz RT, Yerys BE Abstract Background: Neurobiological research in autism spectrum disorders (ASD) has paid little attention on brain mechanisms that cause and maintain restricted and repetitive behaviors and interests (RRBIs). Evidence indicates an imbalance in the brain's reward system responsiveness to social and non-social stimuli may contribute to both social deficits and RRBIs. Thus, this study's central aim was to compare brain responsiveness to individual RRBI (i.e., circumscribed interests), with social rewards (i.e., social approval), in ... read more

  • Variable Neural Contributions to Explicit and Implicit Learning During Visuomotor Adaptation.
    Related ArticlesVariable Neural Contributions to Explicit and Implicit Learning During Visuomotor Adaptation. Front Neurosci. 2018;12:610 Authors: Liew SL, Thompson T, Ramirez J, Butcher PA, Taylor JA, Celnik PA Abstract We routinely make fine motor adjustments to maintain optimal motor performance. These adaptations have been attributed to both implicit, error-based mechanisms, and explicit, strategy-based mechanisms. However, little is known about the neural basis of implicit vs. explicit learning. Here, we aimed to use anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to probe the relationship between different brain regions and learning mechanisms during a visuomotor adaptation task in humans. We hypothesized ... read more

  • Differential Effects of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) Depending on Previous Musical Training.
    Related ArticlesDifferential Effects of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) Depending on Previous Musical Training. Front Psychol. 2018;9:1465 Authors: Sánchez-Kuhn A, Pérez-Fernández C, Moreno M, Flores P, Sánchez-Santed F Abstract Previous studies have shown that transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) facilitates motor performance, but individual differences such as baseline performance seem to influence this effect. Accordingly, musicians offer an inter-individual differences model due to anatomical and functional variances displayed among the motor cortex regions. The aim of the present work was to study if the baseline motor skill predicts whether tDCS can enhance motor learning. For that objective, we ... read more

  • Augmentation of working memory training by transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS).
    Related ArticlesAugmentation of working memory training by transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). Sci Rep. 2017 04 21;7(1):876 Authors: Ruf SP, Fallgatter AJ, Plewnia C Abstract Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (dlPFC) can modulate working memory (WM) performance. However, evidence regarding the enhancement of WM training, its sustainability and transferability is ambiguous. Since WM functioning appears to be lateralized in respect to stimulus characteristics, this study examined the difference between task-congruent (spatial-right, verbal-left), task-incongruent (spatial-left, verbal-right) and sham tDCS in regards to the efficacy of WM training. In a randomized, sham-controlled experiment, 71 healthy ... read more
