Abstract

Nitsche and Paulus (2000) first described the efficacy of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) for functional modulation of the human motor cortex. Since then, tDCS has been an increasingly useful technique for noninvasive brain stimulation that can be used not only for examining cortical function in healthy subjects, but also for facilitating treatments for various neurological disorders. The advantages of tDCS over other noninvasive brain stimulation methods include its ease of use, large electrode size allowing effect over a larger neural network, sham mode allowing controlled experiments and randomized controlled clinical trials. In this symposium, we plan to introduce the three points of studies about plastic changes of motor association cortex excitability induced by tDCS. 1) Transcranial direct current stimulation over the motor association cortex induces plastic changes in the ipsilateral primary motor and somatosensory cortices 2) The effects of cathodal transcranial direct current stimulation of the supplementary motor area on the function of anticipatory postural adjustments 3) Corticomotor excitability induced by anodal transcranial direct current stimulation with and without non-exhaustive movement
