Improving Mental Insight using Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation
Anode: Right Temporal (T4)
Cathode: Left Temporal (T3)
Study Results: Improved Insight
Other Uses: Savant Learning, Problem Solving, General Cognitive Enhancement
Based on results from clinical trials, it is hypothesized that tDCS increases mental insight by decreasing cortical excitability in the left hemisphere of the brain while subsequently increasing cortical excitability in the right hemisphere.
