BACKGROUND Cutaneous discomfort is typically reported during transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), restricting the current intensity and duration at which tDCS can be applied. It is commonly thought that current density is associated with the intensity of perceived cutaneous perception such that larger electrodes with a lower current density results in milder cutaneous sensations. OBJECTIVE The present study examined the relationship between current density, current intensity and… CONTINUE READING
