Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a noninvasive brain stimulation technique that uses low amplitude direct currents to alter cortical excitability. With well-established safety and tolerability, tDCS has been found to have the potential to ameliorate symptoms such as depression and pain in a range of conditions as well as to enhance outcomes(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the efficacy of remotely-supervised transcranial direct current stimulation (RS-tDCS) paired with cognitive training (CT) exercise in participants with multiple sclerosis (MS). METHODS In a feasibility study of RS-tDCS in MS, participants completed ten sessions of tDCS paired with CT (1.5 mA × 20 min, dorsolateral prefrontal cortex(More)
BACKGROUND Cognitive impairment is a common and troubling feature of pediatric-onset multiple sclerosis (POMS). Brief cognitive assessment in the outpatient setting can identify and longitudinally monitor cognitive involvement so that early intervention is possible. OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to measure the sensitivity of two cognitive(More)
BACKGROUND Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) exert a psychological and physiological toll that increases risk of chronic conditions, poorer social functioning, and cognitive impairment in adulthood. OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship between childhood adversity and clinical disease features in multiple sclerosis (MS). METHODS Sixty-seven(More)
s / Brain Stimulation 10 (2017) e46ee83 e57 independent diffusion encoding directions (b1⁄41000 s/mm2) and 5 unweighted images, with in-plane resolution of 2mmx2mmx2mm over the whole brain and TR/ TE1⁄47200/82ms. T1-weighted imaging was performed using a inversion-prepared fast spoiled gradient echo sequence, 1x1x1.2mm resolution over the whole brain.
