SUMMARY Early studies showed that the latency of P300 (P3) event related potential increases or diminishes when anticholinergic or cholinergic drugs are administered. We tested the hypothesis that new cholinesterase inhibitors like Donepezil (DPZ) may have an effect on the often abnormal P300 of patients with Alzheimer's Disease (AD), and therefore, that(More)
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) efficacy in the treatment of major depression has been shown in both low frequency right-sided and high frequency left-sided stimulation over the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC). The aim of the present investigation was to evaluate the hypothesis of an additive effect of bilateral stimulation(More)
OBJECTIVE Transcutaneous spinal direct current stimulation (tsDCS) is a new and safe technique for modulating spinal cord excitability. We assessed changes in intracortical excitability following tsDCS by evaluating changes in cortical silent period (cSP), paired-pulse short intracortical inhibition (SICI), and intracortical facilitation (ICF). MATERIALS(More)
BACKGROUND Clinical studies have shown that repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is effective in a certain percentage of treatment-resistant depression (TRD). The left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) 10 Hz rTMS stimulation received FDA approval in 2008, although different rTMS protocols have also shown their effectiveness in reducing(More)
