OBJECTIVE To test the intra-individual reliability in response to anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (AtDCS). METHODS 45 healthy subjects received AtDCS (1 mA, 13 min) in two separate sessions, 6-12 months apart. Motor evoked potentials were collected at baseline and then at 5-min intervals after AtDCS for 1h. Short intracortical inhibition(More)
AIMS Motor threshold (MT) is an important parameter for the practice of transcranial magnetic stimulation. Our goal was to compare three methods to estimate MT in a clinical setting. METHODS Comparison of three MT estimation algorithms: 1) the Rossini-Rothwell method consists in lowering stimulus intensity until only five positive responses out of 10(More)
Tamarind seed polysaccharide (TSP) is a xyloglucan of vegetable origin, recently proposed for the cosmetic and pharmaceutical market as a " green " alternative to hyaluronic acid. In this study, TSP water dispersions, at different concentrations, were characterized by means of rheological measurements, both in continuous and oscillatory flow conditions. The(More)
