Abstract

Introduction: Transcranial pulsed current stimulation (tPCS) is an emerging noninvasive brain stimulation technique that has shown significant effects on cortical excitability. To date, electrophysiological measures of the efficiency of monophasic tPCS have not been reported. Objective: We aimed to explore the effects of monophasic anodal and cathodal-tPCS (a-tPCS/c-tPCS) at theta (4 Hz) and gamma (75 Hz) frequencies on theta and high gamma electroencephalography (EEG) oscillatory power. Methods: In a single-blind, randomized, sham-controlled crossover design, 15 healthy participa..
