There is evidence that transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) can improve
learning performance. Arguably, this effect is related to long term potentiation (LTP),
but the precise biophysical mechanisms remain unknown.

To assess if tDCS produces a temperature change at the skin surface, if any change is stimulation polarity (anode or cathode) specific, and the contribution of passive heating (joule heat) or blood flow on such change.Temperature differences (ΔTs)...
Marom BiksonNow available OPEN ACESS. Does tDCS heat the electrodes and skin?
By ~1 oC, because of stimulation induced blood flow (not joule heat). So below injury risk and any "burning sensations" reflect nerve stimulation. Results specific electrode / prep quality.
The authors develop a noninvasive stimulation protocol to restore neural synchronization patterns and improve working memory in older humans, contributing to groundwork for future drug-free therapeutics targeting age-related cognitive decline.
