The Beneficial Effects of TDCS on CNS Conditions
- To learn physiological mechanisms involved in TDCS
- To learn about the research regarding different conditions that respond to TDCS
- To learn how nutritional therapy can improve myelination of the brain to enhance TDCS effects
TDCS, also known as transcranial direct current stimulation, is a safe noninvasive form of electrical therapy where saline electrodes are placed in specific locations on the head to achieve biological effects. Thousands of studies have been completed over the last 30 years demonstrating the therapeutic potential in patients with Parkinson's disease, stroke, tinnitus, aphasia, insomnia, chronic pain, Alzheimer’s and depression. Healthy people have also shown results in improving memory, attention, mathematical ability, physical performance, fine motor control, and accelerated learning, The USAF has found that pilot training could be done in half the time indicating a two times increase in learning. Focus, attention, concentration, and learning seems to be the first and immediate target of most people like students, business employees, actors, athletes who are interested in self-improvement, etc.
