Cerebellar-corticocerebral transcranial direct current stimulation – a method of correction of psychoemotional, psychomotor and cognitive disorders

V. Lacusta, A. Gilea, V. Ceres

The paper describes a new version of application of transcranial direct current stimulation with consecutive application of certain principles of selection of brain areas for therapeutic effects: 1) universal cerebellar-vermal principle (the anode in the cerebellar vermis, and the cathode in the region of the cervical vertebrae VII); 2) universal corticocerebral principle (anode in the Fp2 and Fp1, and the cathode in the ipsilateral mastoid process); 3) clinical principle (the anode is located in the Fp2 or Fp1, and the cathode in the fields, depending on the clinical indications for treatment - the projection of F4, F3, C4, C3, P4, P3, T6, T5, O2, O1); 4) The principle of intrahemispheric coherence (anode in Fp2 and Fp1, a cathode in the areas with the most disturbed parameters coherence paired with Fp2 and Fp1, while using short, medium, long and pole-pole coherent communication; 5) the principle of interhemispheric coherence (the anode is located in Fp2 and Fp1, and the cathode in the areas with the most disturbed interhemispheric connections - Fp1-Fp2, F3-F4, C3-C4, T5-T6, P3-P4, O1-O2). For an effective application of the method, each principle shall not be used in more than two procedures.
