Abstract

Non-invasive brain stimulation techniques are being trialed to induce neuroplasticity for meaningful purposes. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is one such brain stimulatory technique, which involves delivering low amplitude direct current (1-2mA) to the brain via scalp electrodes. A review of the literature has suggested that repeated daily tDCS could induce lasting effects in the motor domain in a healthy population and in both the sensory and motor domains in a clinical population. Of interest was whether increasing tDCS dose could evoke cumulative body sensory system function alteration in a healthy population.
