Interest of tDCS in Help for Supporting Alcohol Abstinence

The aim of the study is to evaluate in patients with alcohol disorder and forehand weaned the efficiency of 10 active tDCS sessions versus 10 sham (placebo) sessions in the support of abst...

tDCS in Tourette (TIC-TDCS)

Double-blind randomized, sham-controlled clinical trial of 1 mA bilateral supplementary motor area in adolescents/adults with Tourette syndrome (TS). The primary objectives are to assess a...

Severe Alcohol-use Disorder: a tDCS and Response Inhibition Training Intervention

Most severe forms of alcohol-use disorder are thought to reflect an abnormal interplay between two neural systems: an overly active impulsive one driven by immediate rewards prospects and ...

Study of the Combined Effect of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) and Physical Activity on Gait and Functional Mobility in Participants With Multiple Sclerosis

This study is aimed to test the efficacy of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) combined with a physical activity (PA) program, in 80 individuals affected by Multiple Sclerosis ...

Optimized tDCS for Fibromyalgia: Targeting the Endogenous Pain Control System

This trial aims at understanding the mechanisms of optimized transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) (16 tDCS sessions combined with exercise)] on pain control. Optimized tDCS can l...

A Review of the Effects of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation for the Treatment of Hallucinations in Patients With Schizophrenia.

Some 25% to 30% of patients with schizophrenia report auditory verbal hallucinations (AVHs) that fail to respond adequately to antipsychotic treatments. In such cases, transcranial direct current stim...

Using tDCS to facilitate motor learning in speech production: The role of timing.

There exists debate regarding the extent to which transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) can affect or enhance human behavior. Here, we examined a previously unexplored domain: speech motor le...

Distinct behavioral response of primary motor cortex stimulation in itch and pain after burn injury.

It is still unclear whether chronic neuropathic pain and itch share similar neural mechanisms. They are two of the most commonly reported challenges following a burn injury and can be some of the most...

Cathodal tDCS on the motor area decreases the tactile threshold of the distal pulp of the hallux.

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has been reported to modulate cortical excitability. Most studies on this topic addressed the modulation effects of tDCS on the upper extremities. Foot-s...

Changes in motor cortical excitability in schizophrenia following transcranial direct current stimulation.

Schizophrenia is a disorder associated with cortical inhibition deficits. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) induces changes in cortical excitability in healthy subjects and individuals wi...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormal movements, including HYPERKINESIS; HYPOKINESIA; TREMOR; and DYSTONIA, associated with the use of certain medications or drugs. Muscles of the face, trunk, neck, and extremities are most commonly affected. Tardive dyskinesia refers to abnormal hyperkinetic movements of the muscles of the face, tongue, and neck associated with the use of neuroleptic agents (see ANTIPSYCHOTIC AGENTS). (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1199)

Drug-related movement disorder characterized by uncontrollable movements in certain muscles. It is associated with a long-term exposure to certain neuroleptic medications (e.g., METOCLOPRAMIDE).

A rating scale that measures INVOLUNTARY MOVEMENTS known as TARDIVE DYSKINESIA.

A furancarbonitrile that is one of the SEROTONIN UPTAKE INHIBITORS used as an antidepressant. The drug is also effective in reducing ethanol uptake in alcoholics and is used in depressed patients who also suffer from tardive dyskinesia in preference to tricyclic antidepressants, which aggravate this condition.

Drugs used in the treatment of movement disorders. Most of these act centrally on dopaminergic or cholinergic systems. Among the most important clinically are those used for the treatment of Parkinson disease (ANTIPARKINSON AGENTS) and those for the tardive dyskinesias.
