"A technical guide to tDCS, and related non-invasive brain stimulation tools" - Woods et al. 2015
We are pleased to announce the acceptance of our latest review to the journal Clinical Neurophysiology. The paper can be found online here.
The review is titled "A technical guide to tDCS, and related non-invasive brain stimulation tools". Congratulations to the authors who include Charlie Stagg.
Transcranial electrical stimulation (tES), including transcranial direct and alternating current stimulation (tDCS, tACS) are non-invasive brain stimulation techniques increasingly used for modulation of central nervous system excitability in humans. Here we address methodological issues required for tES application. This review covers technical aspects of tES, as well as applications like exploration of brain physiology, modelling approaches, tES in cognitive neurosciences, and interventional approaches. It aims to help the reader to appropriately design and conduct studies involving these brain stimulation techniques, understand limitations and avoid shortcomings, which might hamper the scientific rigor and potential applications in the clinical domain.
