A brain network perspective on tDCS induced neuroplasticity: single versus dual or multiple-site stimulation

Description 
Current transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) protocols are designed based on abnormal activity of isolated brain regions. This notion is challenged by an increasing number of studies supporting that most cognitive (or sensory/motor) functions are mediated by widely distributed areas functioning in parallel (Fuster, 2000; Sporns, 2014). Therefore the main objectives in this study is to compare single versus dual or multiple-site stimulation on neuroplasticity. Study design: Cross-over, double blinded randomized control study Outcome measure: Size of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) induced Motor Evoked Potentials (MEPs
