Great overview on the current state of tDCS and TMS in the field of therapeutic non-invasive brain stimulation. Dr. John Bellone & Dr. Ryan Van Patten interview Dr. Adam Woods of the Woods Lab at the University of Florida. What was especially interesting to me was being reminded of the ongoing ‘ACT Study’ Augmenting cognitive training in older adults (The ACT Study): Design and Methods of a Phase III tDCS and cognitive training trial, which could be a game changer in the sense of providing a path to FDA-approved tDCS therapies. Also appreciated the information around higher current having the opposite of intended effects on brain tissue!
