Title: The Application of Direct Current Stimulation (DCS) in Rehabilitation
Add event to outlook calendar | Add event to Google Calendar
Synopsis: Direct current stimulation (DCS) has emerged as a promising neuromodulation tool for neurorehabilitation. The technique involves applying a low-intensity direct current to the scalp or spine to modulate the activity of the underlying brain or spinal cord regions. This non-invasive and painless technique has been used to treat a variety of neurological and psychiatric disorders, including stroke and psychiatric disorders. In the context of neurorehabilitation, DCS has been applied to modulate motor learning and recovery. In this seminar, we will begin with the mechanisms of DCS, discuss theories behind changes in neural networks, review relevant findings in rehabilitation applications, and address the limitations of the current DCS application.
