  • Concurrent exergaming and transcranial direct current stimulation to improve balance in people with Parkinson’s disease: study protocol for a randomised controlled trial.
    Related ArticlesConcurrent exergaming and transcranial direct current stimulation to improve balance in people with Parkinson's disease: study protocol for a randomised controlled trial. Trials. 2018 Jul 16;19(1):387 Authors: Harris DM, Rantalainen T, Muthalib M, Johnson L, Duckham RL, Smith ST, Daly RM, Teo WP Abstract BACKGROUND: People with Parkinson's disease (PD) commonly experience postural instability, resulting in poor balance and an increased risk of falls. Exercise-based video gaming (exergaming) is a form of physical training that is delivered through virtual reality technology to facilitate motor learning and is efficacious in improving balance in aged populations. In addition, studies ... read more

  • Frontal cortex electrophysiology in reward- and punishment-related feedback processing during advice-guided decision making: An interleaved EEG-DC stimulation study.
    Related ArticlesFrontal cortex electrophysiology in reward- and punishment-related feedback processing during advice-guided decision making: An interleaved EEG-DC stimulation study. Cogn Affect Behav Neurosci. 2018 04;18(2):249-262 Authors: Wischnewski M, Bekkering H, Schutter DJLG Abstract During decision making, individuals are prone to rely on external cues such as expert advice when the outcome is not known. However, the electrophysiological correlates associated with outcome uncertainty and the use of expert advice are not completely understood. The feedback-related negativity (FRN), P3a, and P3b are event-related brain potentials (ERPs) linked to dissociable stages of feedback and attentional processing during decision making. Even though ... read more

  • Long term at-home treatment with transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) improves symptoms of cerebellar ataxia: a case report.
    Related ArticlesLong term at-home treatment with transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) improves symptoms of cerebellar ataxia: a case report. J Neuroeng Rehabil. 2019 Mar 19;16(1):41 Authors: Pilloni G, Shaw M, Feinberg C, Clayton A, Palmeri M, Datta A, Charvet LE Abstract BACKGROUND: Progressive cerebellar ataxia is a neurodegenerative disorder without effective treatment options that seriously hinders quality of life. Previously, transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has been demonstrated to benefit cerebellar functions (including improved motor control, learning and emotional processing) in healthy individuals and patients with neurological disorders. While tDCS is an emerging therapy, multiple daily sessions are needed for ... read more

  • Cerebellar transcranial direct current stimulation interacts with BDNF Val66Met in motor learning.
    Related ArticlesCerebellar transcranial direct current stimulation interacts with BDNF Val66Met in motor learning. Brain Stimul. 2018 Jul - Aug;11(4):759-771 Authors: van der Vliet R, Jonker ZD, Louwen SC, Heuvelman M, de Vreede L, Ribbers GM, De Zeeuw CI, Donchin O, Selles RW, van der Geest JN, Frens MA Abstract BACKGROUND: Cerebellar transcranial direct current stimulation has been reported to enhance motor associative learning and motor adaptation, holding promise for clinical application in patients with movement disorders. However, behavioral benefits from cerebellar tDCS have been inconsistent. OBJECTIVE: Identifying determinants of treatment success is necessary. BDNF Val66Met is a candidate ... read more

  • Sensorimotor Robotic Measures of tDCS- and HD-tDCS-Enhanced Motor Learning in Children.
    Related ArticlesSensorimotor Robotic Measures of tDCS- and HD-tDCS-Enhanced Motor Learning in Children. Neural Plast. 2018;2018:5317405 Authors: Cole L, Dukelow SP, Giuffre A, Nettel-Aguirre A, Metzler MJ, Kirton A Abstract Transcranial direct-current stimulation (tDCS) enhances motor learning in adults. We have demonstrated that anodal tDCS and high-definition (HD) tDCS of the motor cortex can enhance motor skill acquisition in children, but behavioral mechanisms remain unknown. Robotics can objectively quantify complex sensorimotor functions to better understand mechanisms of motor learning. We aimed to characterize changes in sensorimotor function induced by tDCS and HD-tDCS paired motor learning in children within an ... read more

  • Visual training in hemianopia alters neural activity in the absence of behavioural improvement: a pilot study.
    Related ArticlesVisual training in hemianopia alters neural activity in the absence of behavioural improvement: a pilot study. Ophthalmic Physiol Opt. 2018 09;38(5):538-549 Authors: Larcombe SJ, Kulyomina Y, Antonova N, Ajina S, Stagg CJ, Clatworthy PL, Bridge H Abstract BACKGROUND: Damage to the primary visual cortex (V1) due to stroke often results in permanent loss of sight affecting one side of the visual field (homonymous hemianopia). Some rehabilitation approaches have shown improvement in visual performance in the blind region, but require a significant time investment. METHODS: Seven patients with cortical damage performed 400 trials of a motion direction discrimination ... read more

  • tDCS-induced episodic memory enhancement and its association with functional network coupling in older adults.
    Related ArticlestDCS-induced episodic memory enhancement and its association with functional network coupling in older adults. Sci Rep. 2019 Feb 19;9(1):2273 Authors: Antonenko D, Hayek D, Netzband J, Grittner U, Flöel A Abstract Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) augments training-induced cognitive gains, an issue of particular relevance in the aging population. However, negative outcomes have been reported as well, and few studies so far have evaluated the impact of tDCS on episodic memory formation in elderly cohorts. The heterogeneity of previous findings highlights the importance of elucidating neuronal underpinnings of tDCS-induced modulations, and of determining individual predictors of a positive ... read more

  • Investigating the roles of medial prefrontal and superior temporal cortex in source monitoring.
    Related ArticlesInvestigating the roles of medial prefrontal and superior temporal cortex in source monitoring. Neuropsychologia. 2018 11;120:113-123 Authors: Moseley P, Mitrenga KJ, Ellison A, Fernyhough C Abstract Source monitoring, or the ability to recall the origin of information, is a crucial aspect of remembering past experience. One facet of this, reality monitoring, refers to the ability to distinguish between internally generated and externally generated information, biases in which have previously been associated with auditory verbal hallucinations in schizophrenia. Neuroimaging evidence suggests that medial prefrontal and superior temporal (STG) regions may play a role in reality monitoring for ... read more
