Analytical bias accounts for some of the reported effects of tACS on auditory perception
ConclusionTrue effects of tACS on auditory perception can be detected if analytical bias is accounted for by using correction procedures. However, to fully establish the effects of tACS on auditory perception a reanalysis of the data for the studies that used biased analysis without correction procedures is needed.

Combined endogenous and exogenous disinhibition of intracortical circuits augments plasticity induction in the human motor cortex
ConclusionsThis novel associative stimulation protocol augmented plasticity induction in the human motor cortex within a remarkably short period of time and in the absence of active movements. The combination of endogenous and exogenous disinhibition of intracortical circuits may provide a therapeutic backdoor when active movements are no longer possible, e.g., for hand paralysis after stroke.

Individual differences in TMS sensitivity influence the efficacy of tDCS in facilitating sensorimotor adaptation
ConclusionsMethodologically, the results indicate that TMS sensitivity can predict tDCS efficacy in a behavioral task, providing insight into one source of variability that may contribute to replication problems with tDCS. Theoretically, the results provide further evidence of a role of sensorimotor cortex in adaptation, with the boost from tDCS observed during acquisition. (Source: Brain Stimulation)

Significant improvement in treatment resistant auditory verbal hallucinations after 5 days of double-blind, randomized, sham controlled, fronto-temporal, transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS): a replication/extension study
ConclusionsThis is the largest study of tDCS for persistent AVH conducted to date. We replicate previous reports of significant therapeutic benefit, but only if medication dosage is considered, with patients receiving lowest medication dosage showing greatest effect. Response was also greatest in patients with lowest levels of cognitive symptoms. Overall, these findings support continued development of tDCS for persistent AVH, but also suggest that response may be influenced by specific patient and treatment characteristics.ClinicalTrials.govNCT01898299.

Transcranial direct current stimulation in inflammatory bowel disease patients modifies resting-state functional connectivity: A RCT
ConclusionFor the first time, this study revealed an association of changes in functional MRI and pain reduction in IBD. There was a significant increase in functional connectivity after active tDCS within the visual medial and the right frontoparietal network being connected with the amygdala, the insula, and the primary somatosensory cortex indicating central pain mechanisms in IBD. Moreover, tDCS offers a novel therapeutic strategy for abdominal pain. (Source: Brain Stimulation)

Supplementary motor area plays a causal role in automatic inhibition of motor responses
ConclusionsAbolished NCE after the SMA-QPS in the absence of MEP changes suggests that (1) SMA plays a cardinal role in the NCE, and (2) the network involved in NCE is different from that of MEP generation. (Source: Brain Stimulation)
