High-definition transcranial direct current simulation (HD-tDCS) for persistent auditory hallucinations in schizophrenia.

Summary of "High-definition transcranial direct current simulation (HD-tDCS) for persistent auditory hallucinations in schizophrenia."

Conventional transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) has been reported to alleviate persistent auditory hallucinations (AH) in schizophrenia as an add-on intervention. High-Definition tDCS (HD-tDCS), an optimized form of tDCS, has the potential for more focalized neuromodulation. In this study, add-on HD-tDCS (5 days twice daily session with 2-mA cathodal current on left temporo-parietal junction) using 4 × 1 ring montage significantly reduced persistent AH (t = 3.6;p < 0.01) in schizophrenia patients (N = 19). Add-on HD-tDCS has promising potential to treat persisting AH in schizophrenia. This needs further systematic research.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A technique of brain electric stimulation therapy which uses constant, low current delivered via ELECTRODES placed on various locations on the scalp.

A computer simulation technique that is used to model the interaction between two molecules. Typically the docking simulation measures the interactions of a small molecule or ligand with a part of a larger molecule such as a protein.

Removal of tissue with electrical current delivered via electrodes positioned at the distal end of a catheter. Energy sources are commonly direct current (DC-shock) or alternating current at radiofrequencies (usually 750 kHz). The technique is used most often to ablate the AV junction and/or accessory pathways in order to interrupt AV conduction and produce AV block in the treatment of various tachyarrhythmias.

A computer simulation developed to study the motion of molecules over a period of time.

A controlled learning environment that closely represents reality.
