An article was recently published on Nature giving a great overview on the current state of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS)—along with the context surrounding neuromodulation in general. An important point this piece brings up toward the end—is the free-for-all nature of the current state of marketing for tDCS.
A recent article in the journal Cell, suggested Interferential Stimulation with electrodes on the scalp can activate the hippocampus.
A recent article published defines all the language and terminology used in tES (transcranial electrical stimulation)—including what exactly classifies tDCS as tDCS.
In a recent study published at the University of São Paulo, researchers aimed to evaluate the ability of tDCS to improve balance in different populations by conducting a meta-analysis on existing literature.
Problems with associative memory is common in diseases where degeneration of brain tissue occurs. It is also known that proper theta-band brain wave oscillations within the neural networks of the brain associated with associative memory performance is key to successfully encoding memory.
In a study now made freely accessible online, Dr. Marom Bikson’s lab at the City College of New York attempted to elucidate the underlying mechanism behind the apparent heating effect tDCS had on the area of stimulation.
A recent study by Carvalho et al., titled “Home-Based Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation Device Development: An Updated Protocol Used at Home in Healthy Subjects and Fibromyalgia Patients” explores the potential use of at-home tDCS for treating fibromyalgia.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced the clearance of NeuroSigma’s Monarch external Trigeminal Nerve Stimulation (eTNS) system for treating children with ADHD.
