STIMA DEL POTENZIALE ELETTRICO IN tDCS CON APPROCCIO MESHLESS INNOVATIVO

Risultato della ricerca: Otherpeer review

Abstract

Transcranial DC stimulation (transcranial Direct Current Stimulation,tDCS) is a non-invasive technique aimed at modifying neuronal activity for the purposetherapeutic and / or for the improvement of mental performance. A continuous current of entitymodest (below the threshold of perception) is injected into the brain via electrodes placed on thescalp surface to produce changes in long-term cortical activity.Despite the increasing use of this and other similar techniques, and the relevant onesapplications - for example in the field of neuropsychological rehabilitation - their impacton neuronal activity is not yet fully known, mainly due to the difficulty ofpredict the spatial distribution of the current within the brain, and to determine theoptimal position and size of the electrodes.
