Much of our knowledge about the electric field distribution in transcranial current stimulation (tCS) still relies on results obtained from layered spherical head models. In this work we created a high resolution finite element model of a human head by segmentation of MRI images, and paid particular attention to the representation of the cortical sheet. This model was then used to calculate the electric field induced by two electrodes: an anode placed above the left motor cortex, and a cathode… CONTINUE READING
