Disrupting Interference Processing Using Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation

The idea to actively modulate the human brain with electrical currents fascinates people since the ancient times. For example, the Romans used the torpedo fish to treat pain, and in the 18th and 19th century the Galvanic Battery and the Voltaic Pile were utilized in an attempt to treat melancholia. Since the early 2000s researchers started to use a modern variant – transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) – to explore the effects of a weak current between two electrodes placed...
