Brain Activity

Modulation of Spontaneous Cortical Activity by tDCS: BRAIN Initiative I

This study will determine whether transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) can be used alter the amplitude of spontaneous neural activity, and thereby modulate cognitive function in healthy adults

No pharmaceutical medication involved
Patients and healthy individuals accepted

Device - transcranial direct-current stimulation (tDCS)

20 minutes duration using high-definition system with center-surround configuration
