Investigating Non-invasive Brain Stimulation to Enhance Fluency in People Who Stutter

This study aims to test whether the application of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) concurrent with fluency training results in improvements in speech fluency in adults with ...

Optimized tDCS for the Treatment of Migraine

The aim of this study is to establish an optimized protocol of tDCS that normalize the lack of habituation and efficiency of inhibitory cortical circuits in migraine patients and determine...

The Effects of tDCS Combined With Balance Training on Postural Control and Spasticity in Chronic Stroke Patients

Purpose: Balance impairment and falling negatively impact function of stroke patients. These can be addressed through a tDCS intervention. Objective:Evaluation of effectiveness of...

Augmentation of Working Memory Training With Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation in Patients With Schizophrenia

Cognitive impairment is a core symptom of schizophrenia and is in a large part responsible for the poor psychosocial outcome of the disorder. The use of non-invasive brain stimulation tech...

Modulating Impulsivity in Suicidal Adolescents With tDCS

As a first step toward investigating whether modulation of impulsivity and associated neural pathways may yield clinically meaningful changes in risk for adolescent suicidal behavior, the ...

How We Can Change Your Mind: Anodal tDCS to Fp3 alters human stimulus representation and learning.

The aim of the current work is to advance our understanding of both the mechanisms controlling perceptual learning and the face inversion effect. In the three double blind experiments reported here (t...

Beneficial effects of anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) on spatial working memory in patients with schizophrenia.

Schizophrenia is a severe and often detrimental psychiatric disorder. The individual patients' level of functioning is essentially determined by cognitive, particularly working memory (WM), deficits t...

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) over right temporoparietal junction (rTPJ) for social cognition and social skills in adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Social deficits are core to autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Current treatments are extremely time- and labor-intensive. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) may be a promising treatment moda...

Modulation of negative emotions through anodal tDCS over the right ventrolateral prefrontal cortex.

Increasing evidence suggests that the right ventrolateral prefrontal cortex (rVLPFC) plays a critical role in the emotion regulation, in particular concerning negative feelings regulation. In the pres...

Transcranial direct current stimulation induces hippocampal metaplasticity mediated by brain-derived neurotrophic factor.

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a non-invasive brain stimulation technique used to modulate neuronal excitability via externally applied electric fields. Despite the positive effects...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A disturbance in the normal fluency and time patterning of speech that is inappropriate for the individual's age. This disturbance is characterized by frequent repetitions or prolongations of sounds or syllables. Various other types of speech dysfluencies may also be involved including interjections, broken words, audible or silent blocking, circumlocutions, words produced with an excess of physical tension, and monosyllabic whole word repetitions. Stuttering may occur as a developmental condition in childhood or as an acquired disorder which may be associated with BRAIN INFARCTIONS and other BRAIN DISEASES. (From DSM-IV, 1994)

Disturbances in the normal fluency and time patterning of speech that are inappropriate for the individual's age and language skills. (DSM-V)

Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.

On the job training programs for personnel carried out within an institution or agency. It includes orientation programs.

General learning, knowledge, and fluency with computer terms; also, becoming familiar with how computers operate and how they are programmed.
