OBJECTIVE Transcranial direct current stimulation induces long-lasting changes in cortical excitability in humans depending on the current used. Further, transcutaneous spinal application of direct current (tsDCS) induces plastic changes in spinal conduction properties, tested by somatosensory evoked potentials. To verify this thesis on plastic changes in spinal circuitry, we investigated the effects of tsDCS on H-reflex size and post-activation depression. METHODS Ten healthy subjects… CONTINUE READING
