BACKGROUND It is suggested that transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) can produce lasting changes in corticospinal excitability and can potentially be used for the treatment of neuropathic pain. However, the detailed mechanisms underlying the effects of tDCS are unknown. OBJECTIVE We investigated the underlying neural mechanisms of tDCS for… CONTINUE READING
