How tDCS works



Possible therapeutic use of tDCS


tDCS Home Programs

Help for Depression

Studies have demonstrated that in depression there is often asymmetric activity of neuron populations in the prefrontal cortex. In the left hemisphere (dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, DLPFC) decreased neuronal activity has been observed. This can be compensated with anodal left side tDCS. Improvement in cognitive performance is observed in relatively few sessions. Studies show antidepressant effects are generally noticed after 2 to 3 weeks of treatment.
tDCS can be used in parallel to or complimentary to other conventional therapies (e.g. pharmacotherapy or psychotherapy).
Level of evidence for depression = Level B (probably effective).

Help for Pain

In studies of patients with fibromyalgia, migraine, chronic, postoperative or neuropathic pain, tDCS treatment with anodic stimulation over the motor cortex is found to reduce perceived pain. In relatively few sessions, improvements have been observed which have persisted after treatment.

Evidence level for fibromyalgia = Level B (probably effective)

Level of evidence for neuropathic pain of the lower extremities = Level C
(possibly effective)
