BACKGROUND Evidence from recent clinical trials suggests that transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) may have potential in treating neuropsychiatric disorders. However, the optimal frequency at which tDCS sessions should be administered is unknown. OBJECTIVE/HYPOTHESIS This study investigated the effects of daily or second daily tDCS sessions on motor cortical excitability, over a 5-day period. METHODS Twelve healthy volunteers received daily or second daily sessions of tDCS to the… CONTINUE READING
