Prefrontal Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation Changes Connectivity of Resting-State Networks during fMRI

Findings show that prefrontal tDCS modulates resting-state functional connectivity in distinct functional networks of the human brain.

Pre-stimulus Brain Activity Is Associated With State-Anxiety Changes During Single-Session Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation

The results suggest that tDCS response might be associated with baseline resting state electrophysiological neural activity and the anxiety reduction effect of tDCS depends on psychopathology (depressed or non-depressed) as well as the site of stimulation (DMPFC or left DLPFC) and insomnia.

Beta-frequency EEG activity increased during transcranial direct current stimulation

The results indicate that tDCS of the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex changed the brain to a ready state for efficient cognitive functioning by increasing the beta-frequency power.

Effects of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation on Baseline and Slope of Prefrontal Cortex Hemodynamics During a Spatial Working Memory Task

Results suggest that tDCS is predominately a mechanism for changing neurons propensity for activity as opposed to their strength of activity, and not only alters the efficiency of task relevant processing, but also the nature in which hemodynamic resources are used during augmented task performance.



How does transcranial DC stimulation of the primary motor cortex alter regional neuronal activity in the human brain?

TDCS is an effective means of provoking sustained and widespread changes in regional neuronal activity and the extensive spatial and temporal effects of tDCS need to be taken into account when tDCS is used to modify brain function.

Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation during Sleep Improves Declarative Memory

Effects of tDCS involve enhanced generation of slow oscillatory EEG activity considered to facilitate processes of neuronal plasticity, which may facilitate sleep-dependent consolidation of declarative memories.

Bifrontal transcranial direct current stimulation slows reaction time in a working memory task

Intermittent tDCS over lateral prefrontal cortex during a working memory task impairs central nervous processing related to response selection and preparation as indexed by event-related sustained and oscillatory EEG activity such as theta.

Regional modulation of BOLD MRI responses to human sensorimotor activation by transcranial direct current stimulation

Findings support the view that reduced neuroaxonal excitability after cathodal tDCS causes reduced brain activity, but rather than affecting the primary sensorimotor input of an active task, the process appears to dampen those responses that rely on cortico‐cortical connections and related processing.

Anodal transcranial direct current stimulation of prefrontal cortex enhances working memory

The results indicate that left prefrontal anodal stimulation leads to an enhancement of working memory performance, which depends on the stimulation polarity and is specific to the site of stimulation.

rTMS of the Left Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex Modulates Dopamine Release in the Ipsilateral Anterior Cingulate Cortex and Orbitofrontal Cortex

This is the first study to provide evidence of extrastriatal DA modulation following acute rTMS of DLPFC with its effect limited to the specific areas of medial prefrontal cortex.
