Changes in Sensory Function After Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation on Primary Motor Cortex Area

Results show that M1 anodal tDCS can modulate sensory perception and pain thresholds in healthy adult volunteers, and suggests that tDCS may be a useful strategy for treating central neurogenic pain in rehabilitation medicine.

Modulatory effects of transcranial direct current stimulation on laser-evoked potentials.

This study is the first to demonstrate the mild antinociceptive effect of tDCS over the primary motor cortex in healthy volunteers and the possible underlying mechanisms in view of recent neuroimaging studies are discussed.

The Effect of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) Over Human Motor Function

The positive effects of tDCS on motor abilities, both pathological condition or in healthy population, define it as an interesting option to induce neurophysiological changes complementing the traditional rehabilitation procedures.

Investigating transcranial direct current stimulation and its therapeutic potential

The results suggest that tDCS may be helpful as a treatment for GTS and furthermore highlight the feasibility of home use stimulation.

Adverse effects of transcranial direct current stimulation (TDCS) in a group of psychiatric patients

Results suggest that TDCS applied according to the present TDCS safety guidelines, is associated with relatively minor adverse effects in psychiatric population, and encourage further prospective studies to explore the effect of TDCS in psychiatric diseases.

Bilateral Transcranial Direct-current Stimulation (tDCS) of DorsolateralPrefrontal Cortex during Specific Working Memory Tasks

TDCS prefrontal stimulation can modulte working memory performance: further studies are required that would expand the search field and application of tDCS mainly in pathological conditions such as stroke and Parkinson's disease.

Anatomical Parameters of tDCS to Modulate the Motor System after Stroke: A Review

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a non-invasive brain stimulation method to modulate the local field potential in neural tissue and consequently, cortical excitability. As tDCS is

Modulation of laser-evoked pain perception and event-related potentials with non-invasive stimulation of the motor cortex

It is indicated that non-invasive stimulation of the motor cortex causes antinociceptive effects that depend on the parameters of stimulation and are probably due to excitability changes in remote pain-related areas such as the operculoinsular region and the anterior cingulate cortex.

Manipulation of phosphene thresholds by transcranial direct current stimulation in man

The results show that tDCS elicits a transient, reversible excitability alteration of the visual cortex, thus representing a promising tool for neuroplasticity research.

Transient tinnitus suppression induced by repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation and transcranial direct current stimulation

Results replicate the findings of the previous study and, in addition, show preliminary evidence that anodal tDCS of LTA induces a similar transient tinnitus reduction as high‐frequency rTMS.

Excitability changes induced in the human motor cortex by weak transcranial direct current stimulation

Transcranial electrical stimulation using weak current may be a promising tool to modulate cerebral excitability in a non‐invasive, painless, reversible, selective and focal way.

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.
