Design of NIRS Probe Based on Computational Model to Find Out the Optimal Location for Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation

A computational model is used to analyse the electric field distribution on the cerebral cortex during high definition transcranial direct current stimulation (HD-tDCS) technique and the design of an appropriate NIRS probe has been proposed to aid in non-invasive brain stimulation.

Transcranial direct current stimulation in obsessive–compulsive disorder: emerging clinical evidence and considerations for optimal montage of electrodes

A systematic review on meta-analyses of repetitive transcranianal magnetic stimulation and deep brain stimulation trials for OCD found that the tDCS montage with the cathode over the pre-supplementary motor area and extra-cephalic anode seems to activate most of the areas related to OCD.

Modulating and enhancing cognition using brain stimulation: Science and fiction

A new line of research opens the possibility of modulating and enhancing human cognition using mild and painless transcranial electrical stimulation (tES), which includes transcranial direct current

Preliminary evidence for performance enhancement following parietal lobe stimulation in Developmental Dyscalculia

This work combined a numerical learning paradigm with transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) in two adults with DD to assess the potential benefits of this methodology to remediate their numerical difficulties, and examined two indices of numerical proficiency.

Scaffolding the Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder Brain Using Random Noise Stimulation

The results provide a promising direction toward a novel intervention in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, which is shown to have a lasting effect via the modulating of neuroplasticity, rather than a merely immediate effect as was shown for in previous medical interventions.

Does 10-Hz Cathodal Oscillating Current of the Parieto-Occipital Lobe Modulate Target Detection?

It is found that there is no significant difference in target detection rates between the sham and otCS conditions, and potential reasons for the apparent inability of cathodal otCS to effectively modulate visual perception are discussed.

Computational Models of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation

Though the tDCS electrode montage often follows basic rules of thumb, computational forward models of brain current flow provide more accurate insight into detailed current flow patterns and, in some cases, can even challenge simplified electrode-placement assumptions.

Transcranial direct current stimulation in pediatric brain: A computational modeling study

Cortex electrical field maps at different stimulation intensities and electrode configurations using a high-resolution-MRI derived finite element model of a typically developing, anatomically normal 12 year old child suggest that acceptable tDCS stimulation parameters may be different in children compared to adults.

Realistic simulation of transcranial direct current stimulation via 3-d high-resolution finite element analysis: Effect of tissue anisotropy

Simulation of transcranial direct current stimulation via 3-D high-resolution FEA and investigated the effect of tissue anisotropy on tDCS show that the skull an isotropy induces a strong shunting effect, causing a shift of the stimulated areas, and the white matter an Isotropy affects strongly the current flow directions, changing the current field distribution inside the human brain.
