tDCS Electrode Placement Montage for Insight Improvement

Insight

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.
