Frequency-Dependent Tuning of the Human Motor System Induced by Transcranial Oscillatory Potentials
Different corticothalamic brain modules intrinsically oscillate at a “natural frequency” in a topographically organized manner. In “quiescent” human sensorimotor regions, the main detectableExpand
State-Dependent Effects of Transcranial Oscillatory Currents on the Motor System: What You Think Matters
Imperceptible transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) changes the endogenous cortical oscillatory activity in a frequency-specific manner. In the human motor system, tACS coincident withExpand
Bilateral extracephalic transcranial direct current stimulation improves endurance performance in healthy individuals
BACKGROUND Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has been used to enhance endurance performance but its precise mechanisms and effects remain unknown. OBJECTIVE To investigate the effectExpand
Muscle dysmorphia in different degrees of bodybuilding activities: validation of the Italian version of Muscle Dysmorphia Disorder Inventory and Bodybuilder Image Grid.
The purpose of the study was to validate two measures of muscle dysmorphia (MD) into the Italian language. The sample included three participant groups: (1) competing bodybuilders, (2) non-competingExpand
Effects of tDCS on motor learning and memory formation: A consensus and critical position paper
Motor skills are required for activities of daily living. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) applied in association with motor skill learning has been investigated as a tool for enhancingExpand
Interaction between Neuroanatomical and Psychological Changes after Mindfulness-Based Training
Several cross-sectional studies have documented neuroanatomical changes in individuals with a long history of meditation, while a few evidences are available about the interaction betweenExpand
Efficiency of weak brain connections support general cognitive functioning
Brain network topology provides valuable information on healthy and pathological brain functioning. Novel approaches for brain network analysis have shown an association between topologicalExpand
Multifocal tDCS targeting the resting state motor network increases cortical excitability beyond traditional tDCS targeting unilateral motor cortex
We test whether the effects of brain stimulation can be enhanced by simultaneously targeting a region and its network, identified with resting state functional connectivity MRI. Expand
Frequency-Dependent Enhancement of Fluid Intelligence Induced by Transcranial Oscillatory Potentials
Everyday problem solving requires the ability to go beyond experience by efficiently encoding and manipulating new information, i.e., fluid intelligence (Gf) [1]. Performance in tasks involving Gf,Expand
Enhancing cognition using transcranial electrical stimulation
Noninvasive brain stimulation is being widely investigated to understand and modulate human brain function, and offers novel therapeutic approaches to neurologic and psychiatric disorders. Here, weExpand
