  1. Dear Dr. Marom, I am very impressed that someone is finally brave enough to do the work you are currently researching. I am hopeful that eventually this kind of technology would be available to suffering indivduals who may be interested in this type of help.
    God Bless You,
    Brian

  2. Vincent Walsh’s video is an eye opener! Everyone must watch it. Basically it shows that the data in the studies published to date (including his own!) CANNOT be relied on. He’s not saying that tDCS is no good, (he says he’s a believer) just that the design of all these studies is flawed. Apparently this happened in the early stages of TMS too. Could it be that tDCS has no side effects because it has no effects?

    Hmmmm.

    • Indeed, however this is the case with most of science. I used parts of this speech in my own research class to strengthen the point you cannot rely on data alone.

      “Could it be that tDCS has no side effects because it has no effects?”

      This goes to the issues of correlation and causation. Just because two variables correlate, does not mean one causes the other. Perhaps the heightened senses are nothing more than observer bias. You put someone in a lab, they’ll surely act different than they would at a cafe. Which is why it is difficult to say what these folks find in the lab can be translated to the real world.

  3. Bi-polar type 2. Considering TDCS after 4 treatments of TMS and being bounced out because Medicare declined payment, alas.

    Found research study at UT Southwestern going on. Suggested I might be perfect for the study. Check it out on internet. Found this . OMG. Think I needed TDCS to even begin to understand this as a layman. I must reallly be depressed if I would submit myself to this.

    I am glad you all are doing this research. Thank you for your service and having to learn a whole new language. Carry on.
