Poststimulation time interval-dependent effects of motor cortex anodal tDCS on reaction-time task performance

Published in:┬áCognitive, Affective, & Behavioral Neuroscience, Volume 18, Issue 1, 167-175 Abstract “Anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) induces long-term potentiation-like plasticity, which is associated with long-lasting effects on different cognitive, emotional, and motor performances. Specifically, tDCS applied over the motor cortex is considered to improve reaction time in simple and complex tasks. The timing of tDCS relative to task performance could determine the efficacy of tDCS to modulate performance. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of a single session of anodal tDCS (1.5 mA, for 15 min) applied over the left primary motor cortex (M1)… Read More
