Interhemispheric inhibition of the human motor cortex.
1. Using two magnetic stimulators, we investigated the effect of a conditioning magnetic stimulus over the motor cortex of one hemisphere on the size of EMG responses evoked in the first dorsalExpand

Transcranial direct current stimulation: State of the art 2008
Effects of weak electrical currents on brain and neuronal function were first described decades ago. Recently, DC polarization of the brain was reintroduced as a noninvasive technique to alterExpand

Rhythm-specific pharmacological modulation of subthalamic activity in Parkinson's disease
The subthalamic nucleus (STN) has a key role in the pathophysiology of Parkinson's disease and is the primary target for high-frequency deep brain stimulation (DBS). The STN rest electrical activityExpand

Improved isometric force endurance after transcranial direct current stimulation over the human motor cortical areas
Neuromuscular fatigue is the exercise‐dependent decrease in the ability of muscle fibres to generate force. To investigate whether manipulation of brain excitability by transcranial direct currentExpand

Transcranial direct current stimulation improves recognition memory in Alzheimer disease
Objective: To evaluate the cognitive effect of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) over the temporoparietal areas in patients with Alzheimer disease (AD). Methods: In 10 patients withExpand

Improved naming after transcranial direct current stimulation in aphasia
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has been proposed as an adjuvant technique to improve functional recovery after ischaemic stroke. This study evaluated the effect of tDCS over the leftExpand

Non‐synaptic mechanisms underlie the after‐effects of cathodal transcutaneous direct current stimulation of the human brain
Although cathodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) decreases cortical excitability, the mechanisms underlying DC‐induced changes remain largely unclear. In this study we investigatedExpand

Prolonged visual memory enhancement after direct current stimulation in Alzheimer's disease
BACKGROUND Immediately after patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) receive a single anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) session their memory performance improves. Whether multipleExpand
