Excitability changes induced in the human motor cortex by weak transcranial direct current stimulation
1 In this paper we demonstrate in the intact human the possibility of a non‐invasive modulation of motor cortex excitability by the application of weak direct current through the scalp. 2Expand

Sustained excitability elevations induced by transcranial DC motor cortex stimulation in humans
The authors show that in the human transcranial direct current stimulation is able to induce sustained cortical excitability elevations. As revealed by transcranial magnetic stimulation, motorExpand

Pharmacological Modulation of Cortical Excitability Shifts Induced by Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation in Humans
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) of the human motor cortex results in polarity‐specific shifts of cortical excitability during and after stimulation. Anodal tDCS enhances and cathodalExpand

Anodal transcranial direct current stimulation of prefrontal cortex enhances working memory
Previous studies have claimed that weak transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) induces persisting excitability changes in the human motor cortex that can be more pronounced than corticalExpand

Shaping the effects of transcranial direct current stimulation of the human motor cortex.
Transcranial DC stimulation (tDCS) induces stimulation polarity-dependent neuroplastic excitability shifts in the human brain. Because it accomplishes long-lasting effects and its application isExpand

Pharmacological approach to the mechanisms of transcranial DC-stimulation-induced after-effects of human motor cortex excitability.
Weak transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) induces persisting excitability changes in the human motor cortex. These plastic excitability changes are selectively controlled by the polarity,Expand

Preconditioning of Low-Frequency Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation with Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation: Evidence for Homeostatic Plasticity in the Human Motor Cortex
Recent experimental work in animals has emphasized the importance of homeostatic plasticity as a means of stabilizing the properties of neuronal circuits. Here, we report a phenomenon that indicatesExpand
