This study is designed to allow researchers to use transelectrical stimulation to explore the function of the human nervous system and improve diagnosis of neurological disorders.
Transcranial electrical stimulation is a non-invasive technique that can be used to stimulate brain activity and gather information about brain function. Electrical stimulation involves placing electrodes on the scalp or skin and passing an electrical current between them. When this is done, an electrical field is created that activates areas of the brain that control muscles. Muscle activity as a result of the stimulation can be recorded and analyzed.
