tDCS (transcranial direct current stimulation) at the Brain Imaging Research Center
For those of you who are not aware, up at the Brain Imaging Research Center (BIRC) we have a brand new, state-of-the-art tDCS/tACS GTEN system manufactured by EGI.
tDCS, or transcranial direct current stimulation, is a noninvasive neurostimulation technique similar to TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation). It can be used to modulate excitability of brain regions to improve or impair performance on various tasks.
tACS, or transcranial alternating current stimulation, is also a noninvasive neurostimulation technique used to manipulate cortical oscillations.
We are planning on running a tDCS study in the future, and we thought it would be useful to set up a tDCS group (e.g., using Slack or other sharing software) so we will be able to share resources such as IRBs, scripts, protocols, questionnaires, etc.
If you are planning on running a tDCS/tACS study or you’re interested in tDCS/tACS, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be in touch!
Feel free to forward this message to anyone you think might be interested in tDCS/tACS!
