Transcranial electrical stimulation (tES) mechanisms and its effects on cortical excitability and connectivity

Abstract:

In this review we describe the transcranial electrical stimulation techniques currently being utilized in neuroscientific research, including transcranial direct current (tDCS), alternating current (tACS) and random noise (tRNS) stimulation techniques. We explain how these techniques are used and summarise the proposed mechanisms of action for each technique. We continue by describing how each method has been utilised to alter endogenous neuronal oscillations and connectivity between brain re...
