LIFTiD Review: The first in a new generation of consumer tDCS devices

LIFTiD represents a growing trend in a new generation of consumer tDCS devices where these devices are typically optimized to facilitate and/or enhance a certain task that a user is performing, enabling the user to not only be confident in the efficacy of the stimulation they are obtaining, but to also not worry about precise positioning of the electrodes on the head

The plight of tDCS marketing

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.

Theta band stimulation for improving associative memory

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.

tACS is being studied for targeting alpha oscillations in patients with MDD

In patients with major depressive disorder (MDD), abnormal, elevated oscillating activity of the alpha frequency brain waves have been observed—mostly located in the left frontal regions of the brain. This increased alpha oscillation strength in depressed patients have been correlated with a state of low neuronal activity
