Bihemispheric transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is thought to upregulate excitability of the primary motor cortex (M1) using anodal stimulation while concurrently downregulating contralateral M1 using cathodal stimulation. This "dual" tDCS method enhances motor learning in healthy subjects and facilitates motor recovery after stroke. However… CONTINUE READING
